Ringing for the market

The Town Council held a ceremony in the Market Place on Tuesday 6th March to mark the 800th anniversary of the grant of Faringdon’s Market Charter by King Henry III.

They asked All Saints’ to ring our bells before and after, which we were pleased to arrange. We were not able to raise a local band so we asked an enthusiastic group of ringers who regularly ring at towers around Oxford to attempt a quarter peal between 9.00 and 10.00am. They were not successful but they enjoyed themselves and the message to the public was the same – that the church is alive and well and a part of the community.

After the ceremony and ringers had been served coffee, four All Saints’ ringers joined the visitors until 11.30am.

We hope you enjoyed the music
