Appeal for a Peal “St John’s Bells Restoration Fund: Help get our bells ringing!” 

  • Do you love listening to the bells at St John’s?
  • Have you rung St John’s bells?
  • Have you used the bells to celebrate a wedding or the life of a loved one? 

Sadly, the bells are silent. Toxic with pigeon guano. The bells need to be cleaned and repairing.

 

  • Help raise £15,000 to clean the bells

 

 

Make a donation and help get the bells ringing! 

 

Place any donations in the safe, inside St John’s, by the church door. Please mark your donation Appeal for a Peal. For BACS donations and information about the bells contact [email protected]

 

    • A one off donation from a benefactor would enable all the bells to be cleaned.

 

  • Club together with family, friends, neighbours to donate £1,875 to clean a bell. 
  • Donations of £10, for each year each bell has been in the tower, will raise a staggering £14,740. Our bells were cast in 1824 and 1871. The total number of “bell years” all 8 bells have been at St John’s is an amazing 1,474 years!

 

  • Remember a loved one by dedicating a donation in their name.

All donation, if requested, will be acknowledged and recorded in an

Appeal for a Peal: St John’s Bell Restoration Fund Commemorative Book
