Tolling in solidarity of Notre-Dame and the people of Paris following the devastating fire on Monday evening of the Cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris.
The tolling took place on ‘Gabriel’ (the fifth bell cast in the late 15th early 16th century and known as the announcing bell), tolled from 5.43pm for 17 minutes up to 6.00pm marking 72 hours since the outbreak of the devastating fire on Monday evening.
“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: a time to break down, and a time to build up.” Ecclesiastes 3.
Here at All Saints Branston we know the devastation that fire causes, after All Saints was severely damaged by fire on Christmas Day 1962 but we also know that buildings can be rebuilt and brought back with time hope and faith!

Rung by the local band prior to the Festival Service led by the Bishop of Grantham.
This was a special service to rededicate the recently installed Pace & Roper - ‘St James & Virgin Mary’ reredos (St James representing St James’ Grimsby Minster & the Blessed Virgin Mary representing the Diocese of Lincoln).
This reredos was transferred from St James’ Grimsby Minster where it had become redundant over 20 years ago to All Saints Branston due to Branston’s connection to the architect George Pace. George Pace was the architect responsible for rebuilding and reordering All Saints Branston following the devastating fire on Christmas Day 1962, and so it was felt fitting that the reredos came here to All Saints.
The reredos was designed for St James’ Grimsby by architect George Pace and fabricated by sculptor Frank Roper in 1972. It is an important piece of ecclesiastical sculpture from a significant period by the important collaboration between Pace & Roper.
It sits perfectly in its new location as if it was designed for the Church, and this is the main reason it was felt it should be moved here to All Saints.
Today’s quarter celebrates the transferring of the reredos from Grimsby, its restoration and its rededication today.
The dedication plaque from Grimsby Minster for the reredos now also at All Saints reads:
"TO THE GLORY OF GOD the reredos was given by Ben White Churchwarden 1923-5 and 1938 in loving memory of his Wife Ethel who died on 20th March 1965”
Rung also welcoming Alex Borman into our Parishes as our new Curate, after he was ordained a Deacon a fortnight ago at the Petertide Ordinations at Lincoln Cathedral.

Rung by the local band on the front five during Nocton’s Festival Weekend, celebrating the feast of St Mary Magdalene (22nd July) as the Augustinian Priory of Nocton Park was dedicated to St Mary Magdalene.
Rung whilst members of the congregation and local community set off from All Saints to walk to Abbey Hill the site of Nocton Park Priory (which was lost at the Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1536), some 4 miles east of the Church where they had a picnic. On route they also passed the former site of Nocton’s previous Churches (all dedicated to St Peter) which were knocked down due to being to close to Nocton Hall.
It was decided it would be nice for them to be able to hear the bells as they walked from the Church to the site of the Priory from where the bells can still be heard.

Rung prior to our Summer Festival Service in fond memory of Pam Garner who sadly passed away just over a year ago.
Pam served as Church Warden here at St Andrew’s for 19 years (1998 – 2017), sat on the PCC for 33 years up until 2017 and had been Organist here for 35 years. Pam was also Chair of the Bell Fund Committee between 1999 & 2004 when we were raising funds to restore and augment our bells.
She is greatly missed by us all, not only for her loyal and tireless dedication and commitment to this Church but also her warm kind smile which she would always greet you with.
At the special service today we dedicated the new Paschal candle stand which has been donated to the Church in memory of Pam.
Yesterday (10th August) would have been Pam’s 90th birthday so we were pleased to be able to welcome Caroline (Pam’s daughter) and Christopher (Pam’s son-in-law) to be able to ring with us today in this special quarter peal – which was of a suitable/significant length.
All of the local band wish to be associated with this quarter but especially Yvonne Woodcock, Ray Cucksey & Ron Applewhite.

Rung by the Sunday Service band prior to the morning service on ‘Bells Sunday’ to celebrate the fifteenth anniversary of the bells being dedicated and first rung as a peal of six (4th Sept 2004) after they were rehung and augmented from three to six, and to mark the fourteenth anniversary of the first peal to be rung on the bells which was Plain Bob Doubles on the first anniversary (4th Sept 2005). The ringers of the third & fourth rang at the dedication and in the first peal.
Dedicated in memory of our dear friend Brenda Webster who sadly passed away last Saturday (24th Aug). Brenda was a loyal member of this Church & congregation. She sat on the PCC as well as on the Bell Fund Committee between 1999 & 2004 when we were raising funds to restore and augment our bells. Brenda very kindly donated the funds for the second bell when it was offered to us. Brenda was a keen supporter of the bells and enjoyed hearing them and a good friend to the ringers. She will be greatly missed.
Rung also in memory of Libby Bailey to whom the third bell is dedicated, Sue Scouller (local ringer) to whom the fourth bell is dedicated and also in memory of Molly Applewhite who's birthday would have been 4th Sept.
Also acknowledging our gratitude to the Keltek Trust who found the three second hand bells and donated one of them.
The band wish to associate the following local ringers with this quarter: Ron Applewhite long standing local ringer along with Janet Risdale, Jayne Palmer, Christine Jackson & Rachel Woodcock who all rang in the first peal.
Circled the tower (and as conductor) 50 times to quarter peals, since the bells were rehung and augmented in Sept 2004: 4.

‘Swinging on the Bells’ in memory of our friend Stuart Rogerson (as Stuart would have described it!) by the local band prior to the service to celebrate his life, following his sad and all to early passing earlier this year on 13th July.
Stuart was a stalwart of this Church, being a loyal and committed member of this congregation, and also a past Churchwarden here. Stuart had a great sense of humour, and was always happy and jovial, you really could not have met a nicer person! He had time for everyone and was always willing to give his time freely to help others. A larger than life character who will be greatly missed by us all – especially his smile and sense of humour.
On Sunday morning’s he would walk into Church come straight over to us in the ground floor belfry and say with a sly cheeky smile on his face either ‘ Get Swinging on those Bells’ or something similar!
R.I.P. dear friend.

The Annual Village Benefactors Memorial Quarter Peal.
Rung with the bells half muffled by the local band in memory of two of Potterhanworth’s most significant residents/benefactors, who both died on 24th Nov but 250 years apart.
Dr RICHARD SMITH, Lord of the Manor, (died on 24th November 1602), who set up & founded the Christ’s Hospital Endowment for the young people of this village, originally funding them to attend the Bluecoat school in Lincoln, Christ’s Hospital School which he founded. The Endowment now gives out annual grants to the village children each Christmas Eve towards educational expenses and extra curricular activities.
Revd ARTHUR HENRY ANSON (died 24th November 1859), who was Rector of this Parish from 4th May 1847 up to his death on 24th November 1859. Reverend Anson was a great friend to the village of Potterhanworth and was responsible for the rebuilding of the present Church in 1856, the building of the new village school known as the “Anson School” in 1855 and the re-hanging of the original three bells (the present back three) in 1858.
Circled the tower (and as conductor) 52 times to quarter peals, since the bells were rehung and augmented in Sept 2004: 4.
