2021 Advent Windows

Conerstone Advent Windows 2021


A number of villagers decorated their windows throughout December and maps, showing their locations, were sold to raise money for St Mary’s Church.  Many thanks to the ‘window dressers’, those who purchased maps, Lynn MacIsaac for organising the event and Luca Michalowski for taking photos of all the windows.
