WEST BUTTERWICK NOTES - OCTOBER 2008

 

 

GIFT DAY COFFEE MORNING

 

Many thanks to everyone who helped came along and supported on Saturday 13th September. At the time of writing the total raised was £264.

 

WINDOWS RESTORATION

 

At the present time our restorer is working towards reinstalling the main altar window in late November. Due to the extremely delicate nature of the glass this is taking a little longer. As readers may recall these windows were the first of their kind in a new copper framework system produced as part of the Victorian revival of stained glass. The then new robust frame system  allowed the makers to produce  much thinner glass than previously - 160 years on the effect of this Victorian cost cutting measure is the cause of the time taken to restore the windows.

 

CREMATED REMAiNS AREA

 

We are currently awaiting final approval from the Diocesan Registrar and Chancellor.
