Not at all unusual for an incumbent Rector to become a parent -
but surely a ‘first’ for a Rector to give birth?

Rev’d Sarah Brough of St Mary’s Church, Chiddingfold became a mother to a fine baby boy on 13th December.
To wish her good health prior to the birth and in celebration of the happy event, much ringing of the Church bells took place at Chiddingfold!

Sarah is a great supporter of ringing and her ringers, and has always been pleased to hear the bells rung for any occasion, and has been particularly pleased to hear them ringing out in celebration; such as when, just recently, the news that the new Parish Room project had been granted planning permission. (The bell ringing practice was in full swing as she received a telephone call to announce the news!)

Five separate Quarter Peals have been rung to celebrate the occasion;-
