The unveiling and installation took place at the church of St Alban the Martyr, in Conybere Street, Highgate last month, as Kate and her sister, Myra, created a beautiful reredos screen for a chapel in the Grade II* listed church, a fitting location to highlight her life and work.

The plaque was unveiled by The Rt Revd Mark Santer, the Bishop of Birmingham from 1987 to 2002, and The Lord Mayor, Cllr Ray Hassall, assisted by youngsters from the Ark St Alban’s Academy and Chandos Primary School.
