Filby Bells Restoration Project.
A committee has been set up to restore the five derelict bells in the Church tower to traditional" full circle" bell ringing, we also hope to add a sixth bell to complete the set. The Project team met again on the 20th March at Home Barn, Filby. It has been decided to establish the Project as a new Community Charity. In this way we hope to separately identify the Project from other local fund raising activities. A letter has been received from Reverend Sue Hemsley confirming that the PCC, as custodians of Filby Church, approved the Project and wish us well in doing this for our Community. Work is continuing to establish the new Charity and to develop a schedule of works from various specialists. Any donations can now be paid directly into the Project’s bank account: “Filby Bells Restoration” Sort code: 20-17-20 Account number: 00929441. Other ways of making donations will be available shortly but please start helping us now if you can!
