 BELL RINGING NEWS FROM BLEWBURY TOWER

Christmas is fast approaching a busy time for everyone including the bells and bell ringers. We will be ringing the bells before many of the services to celebrate Christmas including our hand bells at the crib service.

In the past month as well as our normal ringing we have had two visiting groups of ringers, one an all-female group, which included two of our ringers Gill Loyd and Ellen Bramhill, who rang a quarter peal heralding the vibrant designs of Rachel Phillips and Linda Norris for the unique stained-glass window and reflective panels celebrating bells and bell ringing – Project Resound – which we are supporting. Our other visitors also rang a successful quarter peal.

We have also hosted the monthly afternoon ringing practice, which should have been at Harwell, but they have had problems with the tower masonry meaning no ringing. We hope that you enjoy hearing the bells and take this opportunity of wishing everyone a Happy Christmas and All Good Wishes for 2019.
