Bell ringing news from Blewbury Tower

January 30, 2017

Thank you to the male bell ringers and helpers who bravely manage to get the Christmas tree on top of the tower, this year saw a resplendent tree complete with new LED lights which withstood all the challenges the weather had to offer.

Christmas saw lots of celebratory ringing both for services and a quarter peal on Boxing Day dedicated to Mr. William Dent Robinson for his 105th birthday and to celebrate the arrival of Louis, Churchwarden Sue Lay’s first grandchild. We also rang out the old year and rang in the new, something that hasn’t happened for several years in Blewbury.

We have welcomed a returning ringer and a young man has started to learn to ring, a great start to the New Year. If there are any young people who are looking for a new skill maybe as part of the Duke of Edinburgh’s scheme or Queen’s scout award you would be very welcome to try bell ringing. You can start to learn later in life so maybe a belated New Year’s resolution? Come and see what it’s all about… Fridays 8-9.30pm we look forward to seeing you.
