By 1981 enough money had been raised to send the bells off for restoration.

Many villagers were involved in manhandling the bells from the tower to a low loader on the Green. Here we see two of them on the fork lift truck ready to be loaded on to the trailer on the Green.

From the left we see Julie Joyce nee Broome, Ramsay McDougall, John Polk (son of Lady Ford at Eydon Hall), Donald Kench and Malcolm Joyce.
