Wragby church altar front is dedicated

THIS new Advent and Lent altar frontal was dedicated at All Saints Church in Wragby on Sunday - during a morning service in memory of the late Cyril and Trixie Owen.

It was the wish of Trixie to fund the frontal in memory of her late husband.

Professional curtain maker Rita Chapman, along with Janet Lenton and Christine Clark, came forward to take on the sewing.

Much of the work was undertaken at the Thursday Craft Class held at the town hall.

Purple brocade was used to represent Advent and gold trimmings for Lent.

As the work progressed, Trixie’s health sadly declinedand.

But the ladies were able to show her the almost complete work, much to her delight.

Cyril and Trixie’s son Michael Owen and daughter Janet Box attended the dedication service.

They are pictured with The Rev Mark Holden after the service.
