My Lords, Ladies and Gentlemen,
The fund raising appeal for a Green Howards Bell; part of the Restoration of the bells in St Mary’s Church, has been a great success. This is thanks to the generous donations from many Green Howards and GHA Branches.
The Appeal has almost reached its target and Colonel Mantell will visit the foundry at Loughborough on Thu 8 Dec 16, to witness the casting of the Green Howards Bell.
Our own target is just short of its mark and as Colonel Mantell mentioned is his opening article in the latest copy of The Green Howard, donations large and small are still welcome. Therefore, anyone wishing to donate who has not yet done so, details are as follows:
· Cheques payable to: Richmond with Hudswell PCC
· Send to: Peter Trewby, Restoration Appeal, 24 Hurgill Road, Richmond , N Yorks DL10 4BL
· Write on your note and reverse of the cheque: Green Howards Bell
