We did it! After a failed attempt in January, yesterday, the ringers successfully completed the very first Quarter Peal in Ab Kettleby!
The quarter peal kicked off a weekend of celebrations for St James’ church, marking the reopening of the church after the recent restoration, the completion of the augmentation project, and Her Majesty The Queen’s 90th birthday. Saturday saw family picnics in the churchyard and various activities for the younger villagers. Visitors could also try their hand at ringing a church bell once the quarter had finished.
And today, we formally welcome the bells into the church with a dedication service.
