Coronation Weekend Introduction to Bell-Ringing
Over the course of the Coronation Weekend, you will undoubtedly hear the bells ringing out from many of the local church towers, most probably on Saturday 6th May, the day of the Coronation itself. If you’ve ever wanted to know more about this peculiarly English art and to find out how we are trying to keep it going for the benefit of future generations, you are most welcome to come along to St Milburga’s Church in Stoke St Milborough for a taster session from 2pm to 4pm on Monday 8th May. Henry Lewis will be present to give you a go at handling one of our new bells, and Ashley Smith will be able to take you up the ladder to view the bells in situ, as long as you have a head for heights! You can find out more about the story of our bells on our website www.stmilburga.co.uk and if you wish to come along for this taster session, please make contact with us through the site or by emailing email@example.com Participants can be aged 11 or over, but those aged under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Please also let us know in advance if there are any particular medical issues of which we should be aware, and remember to wear comfortable clothes and flat shoes! Tea, coffee and cake will be served, and there is no charge for the session. Donations to the church are, of course, always very welcome. We look forward to hearing from you.
