The Bishop of Bedford, the Right Reverend Richard Atkinson visited Bletsoe Church on Thursday 4th September 2014.
He was very keen to see how the restoration in the bell chamber was progressing.
The picture shows him at the top of the ladder which leads into the bell chamber, closely followed by the Rector of Bletsoe Church, Martin Bailey.
The Bishop returned on Sunday 7th September to address our church service and also to conduct a christening in the newly repaired font.
We also had our first public performance with the newly restored handbells and despite little practice managed to deliver a reasonable accompaniment to the organ.
