“As one walks towards Scampton Church and sees the graves from World War Two there is an awareness of the strong relationship between the church and RAF Scampton that has existed in times of war and in times of peace. Each of those graves has a story and inside Scampton Church there are more stories in the RAF Chapel. I am excited that a stained glass window is going to mark 100 years of relationship between RAF Scampton and Scampton Church. This will be a way to remember all who have served in squadrons at the base.”
Rt Rev. Dr David Court (Acting Bishop of Lincoln)
Scampton Church had raised the money for the window through crowdfunding and sponsorship, and these sponsors will be listed in a special leather bound book; rather than have the book sitting on a plain shelf, a lovely oak lectern found and sent to me to carve the RAF crest upon it.
