Bell Ringing

The  Friends of St. Mary’s Old Church invite you to call and say hello at their gazebo. Their display board will update you on their fund raising for the Keep The Bell Ringing Appeal.  Thanks to village residents, village groups and our local Councillors they reached their target in May this year. To complement their appeal of ‘Keep The Bell Ringing’, visitors can try their hand with handbells using numbered bell music.  They will also be selling some interesting history books about West Bergholt, written by Jon Lander, who was for some years a resident of West Bergholt.

Bluebells will be selling tea & cakes by the John Lampon Hall, Bergholt Youth Group are selling sweets & squash for the kids from the gazebo, there will also be a local Burger and Ice Cream Vans attending and Beer & Pimms on sale from the West Bergholt Football Clubhouse.
