OUT IN THE FIELD: Celebrating good work of young men

Good Catholic girl that I am, I am never keen to see either churches or pubs razed to the ground. But it looks as if the outcome of the consultation – which concludes on Monday January 8 – as to whether the derelict St Elisabeth’s Church in Victoria Drive (and not the lovely modern and friendly church of the same name next door) will be to knock it down and redevelop the site. But what to do with the famous Hans Feibusch Pilgrim’s Progress mural within the crypt of the redundant church? For those that haven’t seen it, the mural wraps around three sides of the room and depicts the journey of Christian and his wife Christiana – one on each side of the room – through their various trials to meet in the Celestial City. The mural is fragile, well worn and damaged from wear and tear such as chairs scraping against the walls and from children playing football in the room and using one of the areas as a goal. Historians say the mural is of great cultural value, has lost none of its impact and should be saved. That will be at a cost of £300,000 and the Church of England has made it quite clear that those who want it salvaged, preserved and moved, quite possibly to the Leaf Hall in Eastbourne, will have to raise the money themselves. I wish them well.
