Bellringing News from Blewbury Tower

May 2, 2021

Covid restrictions have meant that ringing news continues to be sparse.

You may, however, have heard one of the bells being tolled, firstly for the Marie Curie day of reflection on 23rd March, marking a year since the first lockdown, and then on three separate occasions following the death of The Duke of Edinburgh. Our thanks go to Richard and Gill Loyd for tolling the bell on these occasions.

We are very much hoping that the government’s road map out of lockdown will continue unhindered so that we can commence ‘normal ringing’ after June 21st. The Annual Duck Race is scheduled for 4th July and will adhere to Covid guidelines. Needless to say, we are very much looking forward to being able to ring again and are pleased that during lockdown we have had enquiries from three ladies who are wishing to learn. If anyone else is interested, please contact Richard Loyd 07767 463285.
