BELL RINGING RESUMES 10TH DECEMBER 2013

The bells of St Mary's have been silent for 6 months during essential repairs to one of the main buttresses that support the 900 year old tower. This work is now complete including a major repair to the window in the belfry which means that Tuesday evening ringing practices resumed on December 10th 2013. The bell ringers are very pleased that they will be ringing for Christmas services and we hope to recruit some new bell ringers in the New Year.

CONGRATULATIONS TO GEORGE READING

George rang the treble for morning service on Sunday 2nd June 2013, exactly 60 years after his first invitation to ring with the Sunday service band at St. Mary's Church Redbourn. The special occasion in 1953 was the coronation of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. I wish to congratulate George and to thank him for 60 years of service as a bell ringer at St. Mary's and also on his 80th birthday, which he celebrates this year.
