Bells a step closer after sale success
PUBLISHED: 13:00 03 June 2015
A green-fingered fundraiser has been held in aid of new village church bells.
The Combe Raleigh Bell Project is aiming to raise £75,000 for three new bells at St Nicholas’ Church, taking the number of bells there from three to six.
The latest event in aid of the appeal was a plant sale, which raised £720 – later raised to £885 after leftover plants were sold outside St Paul’s Church, Honiton.
Bellringer Trevor Hitchcock said: “Our plant sale turned out to be yet another great event.
“The weather was kind and lots of people came to buy our plants and enjoy tea and cake.
“Thank you to everyone who helped make it such a successful event and, of course, to those
who came along to support
The event brings the total now raised for the bells to £49,641.60.
