On Thursday 21st June Steve and Gill Eggleton and Keith Drewery set off early in the morning to install the art-work and benches at Leamington Hastings in Warwickshire.
The art-work was made by the Via Beata team from Banham. The painting on the figures was done by youngsters at ‘Intents’ Christian youth camp over the Pentecost weekend. It features words from St. Paul’s letter to the Ephesians “Speak to one another with Psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your hearts to the Lord.” Most of the figures are based loosely upon portraits of the congregation.
The fixing of the art-works and benches went very smoothly. We had everything done by midday and then, having enjoyed lunch with Brian and Charmian Cooke, we set off on the journey home.
