Dr Bartholomew has worked on restoring the St Francis of Assisi Church in Belmont and the San Raphael RC Church , apart from being Chairman of the Renovation Committee for the Restoration of the Cathedral and designer of stained-glass windows.

He was unavoidably absent at last Sunday’s award ceremony but was represented by his daughter Dr Maria Bartholomew.
