SCHOOL pupils from across Essex and parts of east London will be invited to fill an empty window at Chelmsford Cathedral.

As part of the Diocese of Chelmsford’s 100th birthday, students from schools in the diocese’s patch will get the chance to design a picture between February 6 and 11 to go into the cathedral north wall.

The theme of the pictures have to be around their local community, church or school before they are collected up and made into a window design.

An arts and crafts exhibition will also be held at the cathedral at the same time. Entry is free.
