Bells are back
The bells were rung for service for the first time on July 25th after an eighteen month break since lockdowns started. Lovely to hear the bells calling all to worship. Practice nights have also restarted.
HRH Prince Phillip Duke of Edinburgh
The bells were rung half muffled (in a COVID safe manner) to commemorate the life of HRH Prince Phillip at midday on 10th April 2021.
Whitacre's Mini Ring
Have you heard about the other ring of bells in Whitacre? Click this link to view the website to find out more about the second set of Whitacre bells especially if you are mini ring fanatic.
Have recently found some wax rubbings of the inscriptions taken of the bells before they were installed in 1977. A much easier task then when access was a lot easier. These rubbings were used as part of the advertising display used to raise money to complete the installation. They show the decorative part of the bells including some names and a image of a King George 1 two guinea gold piece which shows up especially clearly on the second bell. Find out more on the bell detail page.
