Falkenham Bells

Falkenham Bells
I expect many of you have been aware of the Ring for the King project, what with it being on the news a few times! This has been a call for new and lapsed ringers to ring on Coronation day, so that all the bells in the country can celebrate on the day. To do this, we have been training up new recruits all over the country, and encouraging lapsed ringers to take part, so that we have sufficient numbers to perform this mammoth task.

At Falkenham, I have been teaching two new students (it takes about 15 hours to learn to handle the bell, but obviously not all done in one session!) and we have a lapsed ringer as well. This is really good news for Falkenham as we need to build up our numbers. If you been out and about on Thursday evenings or Saturday mornings, you may have heard a single bell ringing. That's our learners practising and doing very well, too, I have to say.

If you'd like to see how it's done, just let me know at the email address at the bottom and we can arrange for you to have a go and see whether you'd like to carry on and learn properly. There's more to it than meets the eye!

Falkenham Snowdrops

The churchyard at St Ethelbert's, Falkenham is renowned for its beautiful carpet of snowdrops. For a number of years now, this has provided a fantastic backdrop for what has become an important event in Falkenham's social calendar – our Snowdrop Day!
Please join us on 18 February when hopefully the snowdrops will again be in full bloom.
Coffee, tea and homemade cake will be available between 10 am and 2pm, with homemade soup and a roll available at lunchtime. It’s a great opportunity to meet up with friends and neighbours so come along for a chat and see the lovely snowdrops!
Donations will be invited for the refreshments. Funds raised will be shared between Falkenham Church and the Suffolk Community Foundation's "Surviving Winter" cost of living appeal.
