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.

 Summer Fayre Cancelled

A decision has been taken by the PCC to cancel the Summer Fayre for the next couple of years, or until a new Incumbent is installed.

As an alternative goods/gifts etc will be sold at the regular monthly Table Top sales which we hope will be well attended and supported by Parishioners.

It was agreed that having monthly "sales" would provide regular opportunities for "outreach into the Community" and hopefully make both the Church building and parish family more accessible.

You can help support the Table Top Sales by:

§  donating gifts/items for sale and cakes for refreshments

§  advertising the events to family & friends & distributing fliers

§  joining a rota for Refreshments, Greeting in the Church, fronting a stall

§  making a financial donation

Please do support this new venture to help make it a success.

 

Next Table Top Sale and Open Church - 9th May. 9.00 am – 2.00 pm

The church will be having two tables at this event and we would appreciate donations of items that can be sold, help manning the tables and also as usual your donated refreshments and help serving them.
