Hand Bells and Big Bells

All Saints, North Moreton, Bell Tower Open Morning. Saturday 18 June, 10am to 12 noon.

The Bell Tower at All Saints’ Church will be open to visitors on the morning of Saturday 18 June. This free event is a rare opportunity to have a guided tour of the new ringing gallery (with its lovely views down the isle of the church), learn about bell ringing and a chance to have a go at ringing one of the bells. For those of you who wish to tackle the stairs there will also be tours of the belfry and a chance to see the two new bells in situ. For anyone who enjoys having a go, the Moreton Ringers will be organising a course for anyone wanting to learn more.

Tours will be from 10am to 11.30am and the morning will finish with a demonstration of bell ringing from a local team.  There will be complimentary refreshments. We look forward to seeing you there.

A reminder that the hand bells are being rung and taught in the church every third Monday of the month).  Everyone welcome – 7.00pm start.
