The Mid-Wyedean Parish would like to thank the Culture Recovery Fund for Heritage for awarding us a grant towards work to re-open the Parish after the Covid-19 closures of the past year.

Their funds have helped towards various work in the parish and made up for the lack of Fundraising due to the pandemic during this last year.

Thank you!

 

 

Masonry Conservation Workshop

St Saviour’s Church, Redbrook

Masonry Conservation Workshop 10th – 12th September 2021

St Saviour’s Church, Redbrook lies in a wonderfully picturesque setting in the Wye Valley just south of Monmouth. The church is listed Grade II, designed by J P Seddon and built in 1873. It has suffered from quite exceptional masonry decay and is on the Buildings at Risk Register. For some years we have been trying to organise a masonry conservation workshop and hoped to run it last year but Covid intervened; the plan now is to run it this year over this long weekend in September. The idea is to have fun over this three day period with works to the building being carried out in the day and presentations and other entertainments taking place in the evenings.

Redbrook Art Angels make TV debut

Children in Redbook made their television debut this week as their nativity was filmed for BBC News. Just before 7am on Tuesday 8 December, 35 children in two villages, including the infant class of Redbook Church of England Primary School got to appear on BBC News.

“Herod is in lockdown in Chepstow and the wise men’s beards were lost in the post. But like every Nativity we are finding the children tell the story with such colour and convey the contagious excitement of that first Christmas”, says organiser Mari Hutchings.

“After Mac, as shepherd, had run down the field for me three times today, I asked him what’s it like being a shepherd.

“‘It’s a bit tiring’ he said!”

Mari wrote the script for the nativity and lots of local people have got involved. 81 year old Therese Casemore made all the angels’ costumes. People donated sheets for the shepherds, parents sewed on wings and a local farm hosted the production. A local drone enthusiast has also taken some stunning footage from above the angels. The children tie dyed all their own costumes and they look so vibrant against the landscape of early winter.  Ava slept in her angel dress every night when she had finished it.

Three girls have written a song which will be the soundtrack for the film.

The children are all members of the Art Angels group, which started during lockdown and gives free online art classes and provides art materials. The group has been ‘adopted’ by the church and is hoping to raise money to fund a toilet for the church (it doesn’t have one at all) so they can use the building for art classes after lockdown.

11 children are doing stop motion and graphics for the nativity and if lockdown restrictions allow, the group will be screening the film on 23 December, in the village church of Redbook, all day to small groups. They also plan to share it on YouTube.

Mari said, “It’s wonderful to have this to work on and I know the creative process has bought us all together as a community.”

Mark Bick, a representative from the church community said, “I am proud of how the approach of Art Angels puts the children in the forefront, telling the story, and that they have gained so much confidence through having  worked on Zoom on various projects through lockdown.”

You can catch up on iPlayer at 52’ 22” into the show.
