We are delighted to announce that Bethersden Belle was auctioned by Raj Bisram of Bentley's Fine Art Auctioneers last weekend. This beautiful and completely unique piece sold for £6,500 which will further boost the St Margaret's Church and Bell Frame Restoration Fund.
The bell frame and tower of our beautiful local church, St Margaret's here in Bethersden, has fallen victim to wood rot and insect infestation. The Tower Band bellringers are raising the £100,000 needed to complete the work and have now reached their 50% milestone.
We wish them all the best in reaching their target and keeping the bells ringing across our community for centuries to come. Rock on!
