Wivenhoe church bells

After ringing for a rather special wedding on Saturday 21 March and sadly for the first time since the end of World War 2, the bells will be silent for the foreseeable future.

We have very reluctantly decided to heed the advice given by the UK government and the Central Council of Church Bell Ringers to avoid any “non-essential” contact with others. They state:
“If you haven’t already decided to cancel ringing activities, it seems that now is the time to do so.”

We know that many Wivenhoe people enjoy hearing the bells and we will keep you updated. Hopefully it won’t be too long before the bells ring again, not only in Wivenhoe but throughout the UK.
It was lovely to be greeted by Erwin as we came down the tower steps, plus several other people standing in the churchyard who applauded us.
