Stalwart funds stained glass window for Bradford-on-Tone church
9:00am Wednesday 11th September 2013 in News
A COMMUNITY stalwart in Bradford-on-Tone has bought a stained glass window for the village church.
David Richards, 75, purchased the window to commemorate The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and dedicated it to the Bell Ringers of St Giles’ Church.
Mr Richards, a bell ringer for 60 years, was born in Hillfarrance but has lived in Bradford-on-Tone most of his life.
He has been a member of the parish council, village hall committee, community shop, neighbourhood watch and helps in the general running of St Giles.
He has been described as the unsung hero of the village for his practical help in various ways to members of the community, particularly the less able.
The window was designed by Jane Gray and a church spokesman described David as ‘an outstanding caring member of the community’.
