Stowmarket Bells

In Touch Community News

We’ve had plenty going on over the last couple of months now that we have the bells up and running. Following our successful Open Day back in September, we ran a ‘Taster Session’ in late October, when participants had another chance to view the bells and learn more about them. They also had a go at the first stages of bell handling – yes – they got to actually pull the rope and sound the bell. We have recruited some of the attendees and they will begin their training in earnest in the New Year.

There have also been various Youth Visits to the tower for Brownies, Cub Scouts, Rainbows and Beaver Scouts with more booked in. Youngsters have been able to go up and see the actual bells as well as seeing them in motion via the CCTV.
