Although there is not much mentioned about the window within the collection, there is one document, which is a newspaper cutting, that mentions a case of vandalism which left two windows smashed into tiny pieces. The windows which were destroyed were First World War commemorative; the incident took place on the 29th of February 1980 before the St. David’s Day celebrations which was due to take place the day after.

Father Peter Fell said that the incident was ‘it’s a sad thing to happen. These windows were beautiful and they are going to be missed.’ He stated further that ‘I can only pray that we manage to find someone who can put the windows back as they were.’ At the end of the article, it states that the police were investigating the incident.

 

Two of the Stained Glass Windows, which can be found in the Church, have been converted into colouring in pages for children and can be found here.
