Bell Launch!

What a wonderful bell launch we had last Sunday! The service in the afternoon was well attended as we welcomed our special guests: Deputy Lieutenant, Lt Col Mike Motum, the Mayor of Taunton Deane, Cllr Vivienne Stock-Williams, Mr Christopher Mew, President of The Central Council of Church Bell Ringers, Bishop Peter and  Archdeacon Simon. Bishop Peter dedicated the bells  and then Simon Adams, a director from John Taylor’s Foundry, handed the bell rope to Rosemary Tuhey, our Tower Captain. The bells rang out!

We also dedicated the WW1 memorial bell in the soldiers’ corner and the Time Capsule. The choir sang beautifully and bell themed hymns added to the occasion. An unforgettable day –  thank you to all who helped organise it.

Giving thanks.
