Restoration of Atherington Bells
The 6 bells here at St Mary's , Atherington hadn't been rung for over 20 years and we got together a Friends group to fundraise for the restoration project. In the end it took nearly 10 years and cost just over £106,000. The story of the restoration ,with plenty of photos and a video, was told via a website (www.atheringtonfriends.org.uk) and the friends Facebook page www.facebook.com/Friends-of-St-Marys-Atherington-110172312405568 It was a very long, expensive but enjoyable project and the 'sweet bells of Atherington, are still ringing regularly.
