History of the tapestry

During a bus tour of the United Kingdom one of the parishioners at the time, Mrs Helle du Plessis, saw a beautiful tapestry in a church in Plymouth – that gave her the idea to relate the interesting history of this parish with needle and thread. The tapestry was designed by Mrs Valery Naudé of Worcester. Thirty-three people, of whom two were very young children, worked for 3009 hours to complete the tapestry of 5 x 2 metres.
