Events and activities external

From time to time the Society becomes aware of events or activities run by other local groups or organisations that we think our members may be interested in. The details will be posted below but it should be stressed that you should check with the event organisers for confirmation of those details.  

All Saints' Church Feering The Bell Refurbishment Project

Sponsored Quarter Peal attempt All Saints' Day November 1st 2017

The sponsored quarter peal this year will be attempted on the front five bells at Feering on the morning of Wednesday 1st November 2017.

A quarter peal of All Saints' doubles consists of 1260 changes and should take about 45 minutes to ring. It will take a lot of concentration and hard work from the ringers!

Please do go along and listen to the bells from the churchyard and surrounding village area. Your support is needed for the project to raise funds for work on the bells and bell tower which has a target of £100,000 as its over 123 years since the last new frame and recast bells were installed. Be part of this historic occasion.

Please contact Vicki Elliott on 01376 572833 for more details on how to donate or for more information on the project or email
