The Bells Return

On Friday 12 April the bells were returned to the church.  They were lined up in the nave of the church in front of the chancel .  The bells were re-dedicated by Revd Canon Michael Bradley during Sunday service on 14 April.  After the service many members of the congregation came to look at the bells and ask the bell ringers questions.

On 15 April Whites returned to re-hang the bells in the tower.  All six bells are now safely hung in the bell chamber and work on the bells will continue during the rest of the week.  It is anticipated that the bells will be ready to ring at practice night on Friday 19 April.  Photographs of the re-hanging work will appear on this site soon.

Painting The Frame

We have just completed painting the bell frame.  Whites the bell hangers have also recently fitted new bearing pads to the frame making it ready for the bells to be re-hung in about a weeks time.
