Ringing the church bells was awesome!! Why did we ring the bells? The answer is to call the people to church. They did come. I know because I saw them in the church singing hymns. It was really loud ringing the bells. You could hear them all over Hambledon. We wen to the very top of he belfry. We saw a bell ring. It was VERY LOUD! Children are not usually allowed up there because it is dangerous but Great Uncle Fred said that I could because I am special!
