BUILDING HOPE

This lovely little Church of St Oswalds at Westmere, just north of Whanganui, is designed by Frederick De Jersey Clere.  Building started in 1914 and was finally completed in 1929.  (I have to wonder if the building was held back by the event of the First World War).  It is surrounded by trees and farmlands, and was particularly beautiful among the spring blossom.
