Import licence granted for chapel window

An import licence has been granted for the stained glass window to be installed in the new chapel being built at the Hastings Memorial Hospital.

The window is being manufactured now in England.

It will be shipped to New Zealand and is not expected before two and a half months.

The window, designed by Mr Geoff Fuller, art teacher at the Karamu High School, will depict the healing Christ.  It will be behind the altar and will be floodlit at night from the outside.

The chapel will accommodate about fifty people.  It will be non-denominational and will be for the use of patients, nurses and other staff.

The old entrance, where the chapel is situated, was built as a war memorial and will be preserved.  The memorial tablet inside the porch will be placed on the outside.
