The Essex Association of Change Ringers   President: The Right Reverend the Lord Bishop of Chelmsford


We are delighted to announce that our new 4th bell will be cast by John Taylor & Co. this week on Thursday 17th of September. We had hoped that by this time a small group might have been able to visit the foundry to watch the casting, but the new Covid 19 restrictions have unfortunately prevented this. The foundry however will produce a video of the casting for those who would like to watch this historic event at a later date.

It is likely that the new bell and additional framework will be delivered to the Church at some point during October, and there is a very real chance that all the work will completed by the end of the current year. The new bell be dedicated to the memory of a local man 'John (Skip) Papworth', who for many years wound the church clock twice a week, was Town Cryer of Kelvedon, Leader of the Scouts and Lollypop Man for the School Crossing Patrol.

Our sincere and grateful thanks must go to the Essex Association of Change Ringers, Kelvedon Parish Council, Kelvedon WI and the great many individual donors without whom this project would not have been possible.

John Elliott
Tower Captain of Kelvedon
