St Peter’s Church Bells Project

April – June 2019

Ringing The Changes!

The bells of St Peter’s Church, Ruthin, bought in the mid nineteenth century by public subscription, are being restored to their full ringing glory in 2019 thanks to a major grant from the National Lottery and other donations.

Local schools were invited to design a logo for ‘Lottie’ the newly repaired bell when she returns from John Taylor & Co the Loughborough Bell Foundry. Over 120 entries were received from pupils aged 4 to 11 years from Ysgol Borthyn, Ysgol Pen Barras and Ysgol Rhos Street and the short-listed designers are being rewarded with a trip to the Bell Foundry in Loughborough.

An exhibition to celebrate the return of ‘Lottie’ will show all of the entries received in the design competition; it can be seen in Studio 2 at Ruthin Craft Centre from April until June.
