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.

12th July 2015

Trinity 6


"Tears may linger at nightfall, but Joy comes in the morning".

                                                                                Psalm 126:v5

"This is the secret of joy. We shall no longer strive for our own way; but commit ourselves, easily and simply, to God's way, acquiesce in His will and in doing so find our peace."   Evelyn Underhill     

We may, if we choose, make the worst of one another. Everyone has his weak points; everyone has his faults; we may make the worst of these; we may fix our attention constantly upon these.

But we may also make the best of one another. We may forgive, even as we hope to be forgiven. We may put ourselves in the place of others. and ask what we would wish to be done to us, and thought of us, were we in their place.  

By loving what is loveable in those around us, love will flow back from them to us, and life will become a pleasure instead of a pain; and earth will become like heaven; and we shall not become unworthy followers of Him whose name is love. Then, we will be truly "serving the Lord" and "rejoicing in hope" (Romans 12: 11-12)

Rev. Tom Maidment              [First published 1995 ]

Oak Processionary Moth

The oak trees by the Parish Office have an infestation of Oak Processionary Moth.  The caterpillars’ hairs are toxic and can cause a nasty rash or sometimes allergic reactions that can cause difficulty in breathing. Please do not touch any caterpillars and be mindful of any children or dogs around this area. We are in the process of arranging the removal of the nests.



Saturday Working Party postponed until further notice. We will be having a skip from 27th August to clear all the accumulated rubbish.
