Transcription of article


The east window in Badsey Church has been filled with stained glass, to the honour and glory of God, and in memory of the late Rev. Thomas Henry Hunt, M.A., Vicar of Badsey, Aldington and Wickhamford, from 1852 to 1887. The window is a very beautiful one, and has been presented to the Church by Mr. Hunt's family. The subject is "The Good Shepherd," and the work has been executed by Messrs. James Powell & Sons, Whitefriars Glass Works, London. E.C. The formal ceremony of Unveiling the Window will take place on Tuesday, November 4th, when there will be a Special Service at 3 p.m. and the sermon will be preached by the Rev. T. H. Vines, M.A., Rector of Fiskerton, Lincoln (an old friend of Mr. Hunt). We are glad to say some of the members of Mr. Hunt's family will be at Badsey on that day, and we are quite sure that the Parishioners will be very pleased to see them, and will give them a very hearty welcome. Mr. Hunt was an earnest, faithful and devoted Vicar of these parishes for many years, and we know how very much he did for the well-being of the people here. He has left his mark behind, particularly in the excellent restoration of our grand old Church, and we are sure his memory is greatly revered by all who knew him.
