The bells will be rung at St Denys’ Church in Sleaford on Thursday April 21 to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday.

Bell tower captain Sylvia Taylor and her team plan to mark the occasion with a ‘Quarter Peal’ as a tribute to Her Majesty’s dedication to duty on the date of the Queen’s birthday.

She says the bells will again ring continually for approximately one hour, starting at 4pm on Saturday April 23 to celebrate St George’s Day.

The birthday bell ringing will coincide with a special ceremony to launch the church’s planned exhibition to mark the Queen’s birthday.

A series of display panels featuring 90 members of the Sleaford community and their best wishes for the Queen will be on display in the church from her actual birth date of April 21 to her official birthday of June 11.

Those involved in the display will be invited to attend along with Lord Lieutenant of Lincolnshire Toby Dennis.
