Guards have now been fitted to the the roof of the tower to prevent any loose tiles from falling onto the path.
One of our church bells (the tenor bell) has suffered a crack and has taken some months to repair. The church clock strikes this bell to make its chime and the strike has had to be disconnected. Click on Trouble in the Bell Tower for the magazine article about this. We are very grateful for the generosity of all those parishioners and friends who have contributed to the cost of repair which with the substantial help received from a number of Trusts is now covered in full: see Bell repair_latest news. The bell has now been welded and is being retuned; we expect it to be put back in position in the week beginning October 27th and the clock to be restarted at the beginning of November.
