Funds needed for Paul Church WWI memorial window
Came across this leaflet about a series of fundraising lectures at Paul Church, near Mousehole, Cornwall, to spread the word and raise funds for the restoration of the extraordinary World War One memorial window there.
A campaign to raise £150,000 towards its restoration has started: here's an article in The Cornishman.
We featured the window on our Heart of Conflict website which gathers together local history and facts about the legacy of World War One in Cornwall. Click here for more.
The vicar at Paul, Andrew Yates, is an old friend of Bridging Arts and is totally tireless in his work across Cornwall.
The leaflet is labelled summer and some of us may feel summer is long gone!
But there are two lectures to go - one on 29 September and the other on 13 October. They're not specifically about the window (one about seals, the other about lifeboats!). They will take place in the church at 730pm. Tickets cost £5 on the door and will include a glass of wine and some snackes. Afterwards, people will be able to chat to the lecturers and raise any questions. This is a totally worthwhile project to support. The window is thought to be one of the most significant in the south west.
