The Bells of St Veep Church
Wednesday 30th September 2015
Please help us keep St Veep’s Bells Ringing
St Veep has a unique set of bells being the only ringable virgin peel in the country. They were cast in 1770 by the Pennington Brothers in a meadow opposite the church and when the 6 bells came out of the moulds they were each in perfect tune.
Unfortunately, during a routine inspection by Taylors of Loughborough, repairs totalling approx. £26,000.00 were needed. We can reduce this amount slightly by providing labour for their engineer and bed and breakfast etc.
The bells are rung at least once a month for services and of course for weddings and other special events. We have a strong team of ringers, some experienced, some learning, some older some as young as 15. They practice every Thursday evening apart from the summer months and new ringers are also welcome.
We are applying for grants and will hold fundraising events but need your help please. Any donation you could make would be very welcome but we would also appreciate your support at our fundraising events.
Please contact Paul Weatherhogg if you would like to make a donation firstname.lastname@example.org
