The bells of All Saints’ Church Lightwater have been restored thanks to a substantial legacy from two of their parishioners, Hazel and Frank Stilwell.
“Since the bells were repaired, so many people have said how wonderful it is to hear them being rung again,” says Revd Mark Wallace.
Hazel’s brother, Jeffrey Gardiner, comments, “My sister Hazel and her dear husband Frank loved living in Lightwater. Most of all they loved All Saints’ and its congregation.
“It was always full of generous and loving friends and priests. Their family was also always cherished and welcomed at their church, so what could be more fitting that Hazel and Frank’s bequest being used to make a joyful sound as the newly-restored bells ring out their greetings and remind us of two sorely missed benefactors.”
