February 1903 - The new clock at Badsey Church

Monthly Magazine for the Parishes of S James, Badsey, with Aldington & S John Baptist, Wickhamford
Transcription of article


We are glad to announce that the new clock is now being fixed in the Tower, and we hope that soon after the magazine is in the hands of our readers, it will be completed. The formal Dedication of the Clock and Bells will take place on Thursday, February 12th. The Bishop has promised to come to Badsey on that day, and the special service of Dedication will be at 3 p.m., when the Bishop will preach. We are sure that the parishioners will be glad to have the opportunity of listening to the earnest and eloquent words of the Bishop. It is proposed, on the day of the Dedication (February 12th) to have a Parochial Tea followed by an Entertainment in the Old School. Notices giving details of the arrangements will be issued later on. The proceeds will be equally divided between the funds for the new clock and bells. Any gifts of money or provisions for the tea will be gladly received at the Vicarage. Offers of help in preparing for the tea will be also welcomed, as there will be much work to be done. The sum of 8s. 6d. in small amounts has been received for the Clock Fund since January, 1st. The total sum now in hand is £81 0s. 7d.
