Birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

From our bell ringers - 

On Thursday 21 April the church bells will be rung in the evening as part of a change of celebratory ringing between Branston & Blankney to mark the Queen’s actual 90th birthday.   Ringing will take place at Nocton from 6.30 – 6.50 pm (approx) and will consist of call changes be rung based on the pattern named ‘Queens’ which is the bells rung in the order135246 (odds & evens).   Also the Church spire will be floodlit that evening to mark the Queen’s birthday.  On Thursday evening beacons are being lit all over the UK to mark the Queen’s Birthday so we thought it would be nice to floodlight our spire as a sort of beacon.  The main bulk of ringing for the Queen’s birthday will take place over her official birthday weekend Fri 10th – Sun 12th June when nationally bells will ring out all over the UK.
