First quarter peal on the bells and believed also to be the first quarter peal rung in the tower, following the restoration of the old unringable four to the present peal of eight, which were dedicated by the Bishop of Sherwood earlier this month (2nd November) to celebrate All Saints Day, the Patronal Festival.
Rung by a band of ringers who have been closely involved with the project or supported the project in various ways. The band includes the Vicar of this Church, those who have undertaken the hanging of the bells and those who have helped locate second hand bells.
Remembering Harry Harrington and Clifford & Peggy Lawrence to whom the two new bells were cast in memory of (2 & 3).
The band wish to associate Robert Wilson of Sutton-on-Trent with this quarter peal, as Robert was instrumental in making the new steel ten bell frame!
With thanks to all those who have supported this Bell Project in various ways, which has resulted in it coming to fruition - especially the Southwell & Nottingham Diocesan Guild Bell Fund and the Keltek Trust. Special mention must be made to Geoff Wells & Mick Young who have undertaken the bulk of the bell hanging work (Hawton has become a second home for them both)!
