Church recording will recommence at St Giles in April 2014. For our first session this year we will meet at the Church at 10 am on Wednesday 9 April. Recording of metalwork, textiles, library and windows has been completed. This year we will be recording woodwork and memorials in the church. Anyone who would like to come along to see what we are doing are more than welcome. Volunteers help as and when they can, not necessarily every week. It is intended that future sessions will be held on a Monday or Wednesday at 10 am.
