14th November: Trend & Tibby's ' Font of Knowledge

St Bartholomew's Church in Armley, Leeds is best known for its famous organ, which has been awarded a Grade II listing by the British Institute of Organ Studies. However, since being completed in 1872, St Bartholomew's has never had a cover for the Baptismal Font.

So when Tibby Singh, BBC Young Carpenter of the Year was approached by the Father, who wanted to commission a project of making a font cover for the Church, as a leaving gift from him to the Church, he got in touch with Trend to help support the project.Tibby is a real perfectionist and his work is first class. To see the finished result was very pleasing and I'm sure it will bring lot's of joy to the church for many years to come.

To find out more about the project and see Tibby Singh in action please visit the Trend YouTube channel or the Trend website.
