'Exists to support the oldest independent railway in the world (being founded by an Act of Parliament in 1832) – now a historic and world-class tourist attraction ... The Area Groups of the FR Society have performed vital roles for the railway since the earliest days of preservation. They coordinate transport to the railway, organise volunteer working parties, promote the FR in their region and raise vital funds. Many of them also organise meetings for local members and FR supporters to get their "Ffestiniog fix" when not able to get to North Wales.'

'Covers an area of 18 hectares on the shores of the Menai Strait and has been owned by Bangor University since 1960 ... In 1997, the Friends of Treborth Botanic Garden was founded, with a remit to help improve the gardens and facilities. The Friends organise a variety of events, such as lectures, workshops, field outings, garden visits, plant sales and open days.'  The Len Beer Memorial Lecture is 'a joint event organised with the North Wales Alpine Garden Society'.
