Bells at Anmer in Norfolk will ring out for Queen’s Diamond Jubilee

The bells of a tiny village church will be repaired and ready to ring in the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

Villagers have now raised �10,500 of the �12,000 needed to restore the 600-year-old bells at Anmer, near Sandringham.

The bells, which are currently at a foundry in London, will be returned and re-hung on Tuesday and Wednesday, May 2/3.

'All this means that we are confident the bells will be ringing for Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee holiday weekend celebrations,' said villager Nick Coleman.

There will be a service of dedication at Anmer on Sunday, June 3.
