Conservation of 3 stone effigies

It will be recalled that three 14th C stone effigies used to be cemented to the floor and outside wall of the south transept.  They had to be moved to make way for the planned lavatories etc.

Reported Commissioned

A year ago, we had commissioned a report from a specialist which highlighted the importance of the effigies and that they should be conserved. As soon as we were granted the permission, the work to move and conserve began. It has all gone well. The effigies have been moved into the open where the air can circulate freely around them. They have been carefully cleaned.

For the time being they stand just off the ground which shows them off nicely.
Now it remains to decide where they should be placed.

Great time at August Jelly Church BBQ

We had a lovely sunny August afternoon of the 14th for our barbecue. Janice served up the hot dogs in church and the burgers were cooked outside on the barbecue. We didn’t have jelly; for a change we had iced buns. Afterwards we had bubbles and balloons and ball.

As always with our Jelly Church, the bbq went well, everyone had a great time, and thanks to Janice for being the top server.

Jelly Church fun and games
