Ring out the bells! Grace Homes Helps the Church Bells in Lubenham to Keep Ringing

Back in September last year the All Saints Ringers, a group of bell ringers based at Lubenham All Saints Church, were given the worrying news that their bells needed some serious refurbishment if they were to keep ringing. The small group, aged from 14 to 85, set up a ‘Bell Fund’ and have worked tirelessly since to raise the necessary funds, donating any money raised from ringing at weddings as well contributions received from visiting ringers.

Despite their best efforts they were still short of funds, and so they applied to the Grace Homes Community Fund (a grant set up by local housebuilder Grace Homes to help local organisations in the communities within which it is building new homes), and were awarded the £500 they needed to fix the bells.

When Claire Johnson, the Tower Captain, found out their application had been successful she was thrilled. “In recognition of Grace Homes’ donation we are going to ring the quarter peal to welcome the new residents of Lubenham. This will be an historic and joyous event where we celebrate old with new as we welcome the new homes and new people into Lubenham village.”

The refurbishment work is now underway, with the bells remaining silent for a short while until the repairs are complete.

We are building 21 three, four and five-bedroom homes at Welland Fields, located in the pretty Leicestershire village of Lubenham. For more information about our Lubenham development cllick here.
