A Barbecue… with bells on!

After a Family Communion service at St Giles’, the sun peeped through the clouds and warmed the backs of those who had brought their coats expecting rain for our annual barbecue.

There was no bouncy castle this time (so no photos of the churchwardens testing it out, sorry). However we did have tours of the bell tower and tried out bell ringing. We discovered you have to be nearly as fit to ring the bells as you do to jump on the bouncy castle! Many thanks to Tower Captain Anne and Ralph for letting us have a go.

Thanks also to Mark and Andrew for cooking our barbecue and the many hands who made and coordinated the food and drink behind the scenes.
