Project Resound: Latest News

June 20, 2019

The full scheme of window, banners and lighting is now successfully installed in St Michael’s and only a few finishing touches are left to complete the project.

The window was blessed by the Bishop of Dorchester during a special service on 7th January and in celebration, the Westminster Abbey Company of Ringers completed a full peal of Stedman on Blewbury bells (that’s 5040 distinct changes of the ringing order of the bells made continuously over 3 hours).  The window and dedication event were featured on Radio Oxford and also in the Oxford Times.  We hope that everyone has now had the opportunity to see the full window scheme illuminated from both the outside and inside of the church and enjoy its reflections and colours.

We have raised £77,600 (as of 7th February) and we are currently projecting for the project to come in slightly under budget at £78,000.

Sale of artefacts from Edwardian Stained Glass

There are now only a few remaining Edwardian Glass panels available to order before the artifacts are sent to David Harber’s workshop for framing next week.  This is the final chance!

The rectangular glass panels (42x29cm approx) are being upcycled as follows:

  1. In an unpolished, antique brown bronze crush fold frame, enclosed in a circle of unpolished, antique brown bronze with two hanging points. £450.
  2. In an unpolished, antique brown bronze crush fold frame only. £310.
  3. Unframed £250.

David Harber will provide an unpolished, antique brown bronze plaque for each type of panel which will be engraved with date and details, a Latin motto, the number of the panel and David’s engraved signature.

There are also a few smaller/irregular pieces left and you can find out more from Gill Loyd on gillianloyd@gmail.com or call her on 01235 850459.
