Shipton bells: a progress report

shiptonbellsThe Shipton Bell Fund (target £70,000) now stands at approximately £27,750 which includes a contribution of £20,000 from the Parochial Church Council, the proceeds from Gordon Halliday’s Big Band Evening in March of this year, donations from local residents, donations from bell ringers both local and visitors, and the proceeds from tower tours, bookstall and tombola at the recent Church Open Day. As you can see much more needs to be raised if we are to meet our projected start date for the work of autumn 2018.
Applications have been made to grant giving organisations and the results should be known later in the year.
