Saint Boniface Cathedral, Complete! 

After months of restoration work, Ian and Alec have now reinstalled the last of the windows at Saint Boniface Cathedral, Bunbury. These 56 year old windows, originally created by the late Ted Gowers and Albert Brown, required a complete rebuild, and are now equipped to withstand the tests of time for at least another 70 years.  All of our crafts people involved were grateful for the opportunity to work on these magnificent windows and the clients are overjoyed with the final results. A job well done!
