Photographs supplied by Graeme Saunders

Four stained glass windows commemorate the Diamond Jubilee of the reign of Queen Victoria in 1897. A circular window in the gable has the Royal Coat of Arms, and three lancet windows below it represent "Faith", "Charity / Love", and "Hope"

The Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom was celebrated on 20 June 1887. Victoria marked the fiftieth anniversary of her accession on 20 June 1887 with a banquet to which 50 European kings and princes were invited.

An artistically designed stained-glass window, erected in the local Anglican Church in commemoration of Her Majesty’s Jubilee, was seen in position for the first time on Sunday, and was the theme of general admiration with the congregation. The morning services were conducted by Dr. Thorton, Bishop of Ballarat.
