On the Saturday evening The Revd. Roger Hawkins gave a fascinating talk about how he researched, designed and stitched eight panels of petit point depicting 1,000 years of English cathedrals.  What an impressive feat!

 We are very grateful to The Revd. Roger Hawkins for entrusting his work to us for the exhibition and also for officiating at the Festival Eucharist on the Sunday morning when the St. Andrew's Singers sang the service.
