Stained Glass Window Project 1964

1964 - Newspaper

Two stained glass windows, each 15 ft. high by 2 ft. wide, have been made by children at Beechholme, the L.C.Cís children's home in Fir Tree Road, Banstead.

The two windows have now been fitted - again by the children - in the central north window of the homeís own chapel.

The work was completed, under the direction of Mrs. Nancy David.

The children contacted suppliers of coloured glass and a firm which dealt with lead for stained glass windows, then they sought the advice of specialist artists.

Pictured here, John Taylor, Derek Fletcher and David Gould pause for a moment before placing the last piece of glass into position
