TEXTILE PANELS ON DISPLAY AT AYSCOUGHFEE

The 8 magnificent panels created by over 20 adults and 50 schoolchildren are now on display at Ayscoughfee Hall in Spalding  until September.  Fiona Gurney guided and helped the participants to create a very special work of art.  It is hoped that in the not too distant future they will be hanging in refurbished Chapels,

The official opening at Ayscoughfee Hall took place on SATURDAY, 30th JUNE 

We hope that many will come to view this stunning artistic creation that reflects the beauty and dignity of many facets of the cemetery and the Victorian Chapels in Holbeach.
