Olivia's window

In memory of Olivia Alkir

Olivia will always be remembered. Her friends, family and school chums come regularly to the churchyard with flowers, to sign her memorial book or light a candle by her photograph.

But Jo, Mesut and the community feel that more is needed to keep Olivia in our thoughts forever. Olivia was very artistic and, by choosing an image from her school artbook, Jo engaged a stained-glass window designer from Chester to reproduce one her best loved artworks depicting a lane in Efenechtyd. It will replace one of the existing, clear church window panes. The target of £15,000 to create and install the window had been reached through crowdfunding and donations.  We will be posting updates on the website with the progress on the construction of the window.

Olivia’s memory will live on through her artwork in St. Michael and All Angels parish church and will give countless number of people enjoyment whilst experiencing the peace and tranquillity of this very special place.


Work has now started on the stained glass window and the artist has created images to show how it will look in place.
