At our All Souls service on 2nd November Tim Giles showed the beautiful stained glass window he has made. It shows St Arilda, and is inspired by a window high in Gloucester cathedral which may well be the a much older image of Arilda.. A full article on the window will be in a future issue of 4-ward magazine. The new window and the window in the cathedral are shown below
