Bermondsey bells

The bells were ringing out this afternoon for the wedding of Lesley and Freddie (left).

God bless you both and all the family on your special day.

Meanwhile this morning St James's welcomed a party of visitors from St James's Cathedral in Toronto, a church with a strong Bermondsey link.

Our St James's has a new set of bells, installed in 1990, but the old set of bells were sold to the St James's Cathedral in Toronto where they form one of only two sets of 12 change ringing bells on the North American continent, providing a little bit of Bermondsey in the heart of Canada.
