Ringing the Bell at St. Mary's!

Saturday, May 29, 2021

To celebrate the installation of the original 14th Century Bell everyone was invited to come and ring the Bell!

Our first event after opening the Church on 17th May marked the re-dedication of the bell which had been discovered and re-installed in the Church during its renovation. On 29th May, a warm and sunny Saturday, people and their dogs came to the Church to be greeted by Reverend Stephen Thorp. Many tried their hand at ringing the bell, which proved more difficult than it might appear, had a guided tour of the Church, and enjoyed our beautiful garden. We are glad that the event proved enjoyable and a big thanks to everyone for their donations.
