St Leonard’s Bell Ringers
When the bells were first hung at Heston, it was a ring of 6, mounted on plain bearings in a wooden frame. In 1856, these bells were recast. In 1908, two trebles were added, to make it a ring of 8 and to complete the octave. At some time during the early 1930s, the wooden frame was replaced by a metal one and the plain bearings were replaced by ball bearings. No other major work was carried out on the bells themselves until 1986, when it was decided that a crack in one of the cannons on the Forth warranted the attention of a bell foundry. When the bells were re-hung, the Second was chosen in honour of the 1st/2nd Heston Scouts, who had raised a substantial amount of money for the bell restoration.
St Leonard’s Sunday School
St Leonard's has a thriving Sunday School and all children are welcome at 10 o'clock on a Sunday.
