The PCC had a really good Away Day at the Mill House in Tiverton last Saturday 16th May. The weather was bright and sunny and it is a place where you feel away from it all.
The PCC members worked hard on the beginnings of a five year plan for St Mary Magdalene.
They also agreed to donate £20,000 to the bell fund for a St Mary Magdalene bell. This means only the 9th and tenor bells are left to sponsor. In addition, the largest chime bell has been designated “The Somerset Bell” to represent all the people of Somerset and anyone who has anything to do with Somerset is being invited to chip in £2 or more to help fund it. We estimate we are about £72,000 short of the £300,000. This is an incredible achievement. We can begin to truly believe that soon our new bells will ring out.
