For whom the bell tolls!

I am really excited that the extensive fundraising campaign by the Newton community to get church bells in the beautiful St James' Church has been successful. It has been a marathon campaign and full credit to the team - particularly Mowden Hall staff and supporters. The bells have now arrived from the Foundry and the blessing of the bells takes place on Tuesday, and although I sadly will not be attending due to commitments in Westminster, I hope the event is a great success and I look forward to visiting soon. I have never done any campanology (bell ringing) but maybe one day!
