Window is installed

These are the pictures which show the new stained glass window being installed in St Mary's Church, Melton Mowbray, by Derek Hunt and Jon Greenaway on November 6th this year.

I was privileged enough to be the only person on that brisk morning to watch the two men fitting the new memorial to benefactor John Plumb, who left £1.3m in his will towards the Re-ordering Project in our beautiful Grade I Listed building, writes Phil Balding.
 
And what a fitting and fantastic memorial the window is. Entitled “The Tree of Life,” it is a colourful and vibrant piece which makes reference to the many things associated with Melton Mowbray including St Mary’s Church, painting the town red, the Town Estate, the Borough Council, the Butter Cross, a Leicestershire fox and pheasants, Stilton Cheese and a pork pie! There is also a reference to John Plumb in the bottom right hand corner.
