I got a nice big parcel this morning from the Whitechapel Bell Foundry.
Inside was the Maidenhead Town Crier’s bell, fully refurbished. A new clapper, and handle and the words ‘refurbished 2013’ on the ferule.
It sounds better than ever, looks great and best of all is not going to fly off the handle and hit anyone on the head when I am out and about ringing it.
Now off to the tailors to see how they are getting on with the livery.
