Previous Church Recorders Projects

St Michael and All Saints, Claverdon

On Sunday 10th June 2018, members of Stratford Decorative and Fine Arts Society (STRADFAS, Arts Society) joined the congregation of St Michael and All Angels Church, Claverdon, for the formal handover of the recently compiled Church Records.

Records handover: Jean Vaudeau with Margaret and John Cunnington of STRADFAS present the Church Records of St. Michael and All Angels Church, Claverdon, to the Rev. Andy Larkin and church representative, Rosemary Holding

The Service was conducted by Rev. Andy Larkin, who introduced Jean Vaudeau, who had led the two-year project. Jean described how she and her team of church recorders had compiled the written and photographic description of every single artefact within the church, and thanked church representative, Rosemary Holding, who had worked hard to facilitate all of their many recording sessions.

The Records were then formally handed over for the church to keep. Other copies will go to Warwickshire Records Office and to the V&A Museum in London. The Records will be a valuable resource available to all concerned with the management and preservation of church heritage.

The event was also mentioned in the Stratford Herald on Thursday 14th June 2018

The STRADFAS Church Recorders group presented the completed Record of Church Furnishings to St Milburga`s Church Wixford  B49 6DD  on Sunday 6th December 2015 after the evening service. Several STRADFAS members were there for the event, which was very enjoyable. St Milburga`s is a tiny church in an idyllic setting, with many interesting features, all now documented in a bound volume: the electronic record now resides in several national record collections.
