Celebrating Accession Day anniversary

On 6th February 2022, the bells of St Andrew’s Church in Allensmore rang out to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Accession of HM Queen Elizabeth II to the throne. Bellringers from Allensmore and Madley came together to ring rounds, call-changes and Grandsire Doubles.

Local residents were invited along to see us ring and were fascinated by a CCTV camera set up on the bells enabling them to watch what happens at the other end of the rope! Some even had a go at ringing under Stephen William’s expert supervision.

Clapper refurbishment at Allensmore

During a routine tower inspection by Mark Pugh (belfriesofficer@hdgb.org), it was discovered that the clapper bushes needed replacing. Work is booked in at Taylors for 17th May.

We hope to resume our full ringing at Allensmore – with refurbished clappers – after the eagerly anticipated lifting of restrictions on 21st June.

Progress:

28th April – clappers removed ready for transporting
