ANGELS have been spotted flying above the pews in Bangor Cathedral.

The benevolent celestial beings are carrying an ecological message about recycling as well as promoting caring in the community.

The angels are made out of recycled plastic milk bottles and many of them have been made in memory of loved ones.

The angel display links with the cathedral's annual Advent exhibition.

There is also an 'angel hunt' activity going on in the cathedral, with a eco message.

The Dean of Bangor the Very Rev'd Kathy Jones said:

"We have been working in conjunction with Dylan’s restaurant. People have been making angels out of recycled milk bottles, a design constructed by Jane Evans who is the co-owner of Dylan’s.

"The project also links with an Advent Angel hunt - where for each day in Advent a different angel will appear in the cathedral with a clue to where you can find its pair somewhere on the High Street in Bangor.

She added: "The angel on the High Street will also have a message to promote being community or ecologically minded. "

The exhibition will be blessed by the Right Reverend Andrew John Bishop of Bangor on Sunday.

People can come in and see the angels from 10am - 4pm from Monday to Friday, or 10am - 1pm, on Saturday.
