This Society of Bell Ringers regularly ring the bells for services at St. Mary's Church in the small village of Holme-next-the-Sea
which lies on the north west coast of Norfolk on the edge of The Wash. The parish is in the diocese of Norwich and is one of a group of six coastal
parishes which are known collectively as
The Saxon Shore Benefice.
At 7 p.m. on Monday 13th October in the church of St. Mary the Virgin, Old Hunstanton the Reverend Susan Bowden-Pickstock will be Instituted by the Right Reverend Graham James, the Bishop of Norwich and Inducted and Installed by the Venerable Steven Betts as Rector of the Saxon Shore Benefice.
All parishioners in the Benefice are welcome to attend.
She brings with her a heart for mission, great skills in communication, experience in the building of communities, in schools work and in finding new ways of reaching the
church out into the community. She is a 'people person' with energy and creativity and much looks foward to living and working amongst us. We look forward very much to
her moving to Brancaster Rectory and taking up her duties among us all.

Our thanks to Mr. Terry Greenacre, Tower Captain of St. Margaret's, King's Lynn (now King's Lynn Minster) for the following 100
year old news item. We have seen many versions of our village name and Holme-on-Sea is amongst the more interesting... Good to see that the village
ringers were managing to remain 'pious' during the New Year celebrations!
