Several comments have been received today from parishioners who have been grateful to hear the bells ringing out throughout the village again this morning. Thank you Borden Band.

Congratulations to Borden Steeplekeeper Chris on his 20th year as a member of the Ancient Society of College Youths. The anniversary was commemorated at Borden with a quarter peal Saturday afternoon. To mark the anniversary, Chris has kindly presented to the tower a Victorian Clock and a Victorian Noticeboard.

Everything is moving apace for the Heritage Open Days events which take place in a couple of weeks.  The tower has been spruced up, leaflets distributed, banners hung, invitations sent, website created...  We are looking forward to throwing the doors open to the bell tower for visitors to see the tower, workings and bells.  Most importantly, we can't wait to ring out and share our enjoyment for bell-ringing with the public.

Take a look on the events page for the timings and event details.  We look forward to seeing you there.
