APPEAL of BELLS

North Curry’s church bells are failing.
Age has made them unsafe.
£150,000 we can renew them.
Will you help?

We have reached

£60,000!

Well over a third

of the way there!

Bells have rung in North Curry church since at least the reign of Henry VIII.  Half of the current bells are already over 200 years old. 
 
They are a traditional part of the village, and not just for churchgoers.  The bells are heard by all: most often in the church clock chimes, which sound every quarter, day and night; but they also mark the turning points of village and personal life, from births and weddings to funerals. 
 
But the bells can no longer be rung as before.  The frame and fittings that support them, and the bells themselves, are wearing out.  It is no longer safe to ring the largest bells together. 
 
The best (and best-value) solution is to replace the frame and fittings and re-cast the bells.  The bells will live on for centuries to come.  The same notes will ring out, but more melodically.  The clock will continue to chime. 
 
To achieve this, we must raise £150,000.  Will you help us? 

 

Let’s put the recent sadness and worry behind us, and focus on something joyous for the church and village.  This is a real chance for us all to secure our bells and bell-ringing for future generations.  Let the ‘Cathedral of the Moors’ ring out again for the next two hundred years!
