A record number of residents visited the Centre on its first Residents’ Weekend open day, enjoying the opportunity to take a guided tour of St Martin-cum-Gregory, as well as see craftspeople in action. A highlight was the Harry Harvey exhibition, which gave residents the rare opportunity to see cartoons and glass from this famous local glass artist, as well as a documentary film of his twentieth-century work.
Local artists and craftspeople provided displays and demonstrations, whilst many people tried their hands at glass-painting, guided by renowned stained glass artist Helen Whittaker. The stained glass quiz was particularly popular with children, who expertly uncovered the answers from around the church.
Thanks to everyone who participated for making the day such a success!
