St Albans U3A Architecture Group visit to the church

St Albans U3A Architecture Group

We had a really lovely visit to St Jude's today - and we are very grateful to you for giving the time to us to bring to life the history of Hampstead Garden Suburb and your beautiful church.

I particularly liked the wall paintings in the Lady Chapel, and the insights you gave us into what Henrietta Barnett and her colleagues were trying to achieve.  We walked around the Suburb after our visit with new eyes.

I hope that your lottery bid is successful - an uphill struggle indeed to maintain such a large building!  I attach two photos I took and hope they are useful.

What a lovely programme for the St Jude's Proms - although we will be away so I won't be able to come to any of them - but I will look out for them again next year.

Once again,  thank you for your time and expertise, and for making us so welcome.
