Shipton Bells Update:
The bells are due to be removed from the tower on 1 October, a process which will take approximately 4 days. To reduce costs, between the last Sunday where the bells will be rung (23 Sunday) and 1 October, bell ringers along with other volunteers will remove as many of the fittings as possible. Also, volunteers will be required to assist the bell hanger in removing the bells. And, at the later date, to paint the bell frame. Anyone who could spare a bit of time during this period to help with this please get in touch with Mike Brooks 01993 830014.
