11th & 12th June – Celebrating Queen and Bells

This weekend, St. James’ Church, Ab Kettleby, is hosting two special events.Sally

On Saturday 11th June, to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday, the day will start with a quarter-peal attempt at 10:45am after which there will be a Family Picnic in the churchyard (bring your own picnic and chairs). Lots of activities are planned, with games, races, treasure hunt and an opportunity for adults and older children to ring the bells.

On Sunday 12th June at 2:30pm, the Rev. Dr. Peter Hooper will dedicate our three new bells and thank our benefactors. This will be followed by light refreshments.

Over the weekend there will be both a live ‘webcam’ relay of the bells in the belfry and pictorial displays of the augmentation from casting to installation.
