The Kentish village of COWDEN rang out

The village church of COWDEN in Kent is dedicated to St. Mary Magdalene and has six bells.  The original bells were recast and rehung in 1911 to commemorate the reign of Edward VII and a sixth was added at the coronation of George V.  On the day the Churchwarden gave all the ringers a red rose buttonhole and they celebrated their hard work and ST.GEORGE in style – with champagne.  Here is a picture of the happy band sent in by Caroline Levy-Cooper.
