In every respect it has been a busy time for Ebrington WI. In mid-April they served a traditional tea for a group of American ladies, all of whom were educationalist visiting England to research the WI movement which is unlike anything they have in the States. In addition to enjoying the countryside, they had spent two days visiting NFWI headquarters and Denman College.
The bells of Ebrington church have been calling people to worship at St. Eadburgha's, with few exceptions, since 1648. Our original three bells were augmented over time, thanks to the generosity of the church council and other benefactors, and we have now enjoyed our current ring of six bells for 160 years.
Generations of bell-ringers have rung and continue to ring for services, weddings, celebrations and other special events, and the tradition is maintained to this day.
