History

2000 A miniring of 12 bells was cast by Richard Bowditch & Matthew Higby and hung in the garage of Phillip & Elizabeth Barnes. Matthew Higby hung them on 5th/6th December, and the bells were dedicated by F'r David A. Gibbons, Parish Priest of Sacred Heart (RC), Camberwell at a party on 6th December.
