Campton’s new church bells arrive on Friday March 9!

 

The tower of All Saints Church has been busy in the last few weeks, preparing for the arrival of our new bells and bell frame. New louvres have been installed and pigeon grilles are being fitted which should finally solve our longstanding pigeon problems!

 

The new bells will arrive mid-morning on Friday, March 9. They will be on display in the church for about 10 days and there will be opportunities to view them on Saturday, March 10, between 10am and 4pm, and also on Sunday, March 11, between 2pm and 5pm. On Mothering Sunday, March 18, the bells will be blessed by Dean at the 11.15am service.

 

Installation of the bells and frame will take place during March in two phases and the work should be complete towards the end of March. We expect to be ringing the new bells in early April.

 

The bells will be dedicated by The Right Reverend Richard Inwood, Bishop of Bedford, at a special service at All Saints on Sunday, July 1, at 5pm.

 

If you would like to know more about the new bells please call John Loveless or Linda Garton on 819074.
