PORTRAIT APPEAL

The only surviving portrait of Parson Woodforde, that painted by his nephew Samuel Woodforde R.A., is in urgent need of  conservation. The portrait is owned by the Weston Longville Parochial Church Council but the Society has agreed to launch an Appeal Fund. The work is being undertaken at the Houghton Conservation Studios. Contributions can be made by bank transfer to the Society's account: Sort Code 20-53-77, Account No. 50737097. A Gift Aid form can be obtained from the Society's Treasurer.
