whitechapel Church has received a ringing endorsement for its support of the Olympic Games.

Bellringers took part in a nationwide event to sound their bells and herald in the London Games.

And now the church has received a certificate in recognition of its efforts.

Joan Pinder said: “We registered with All The Bells of our intention to take part and were delighted to receive the certificate.”

Bells throughout the country, and across the world including China, Russia, Germany, Italy, Bangladesh, Australia, Botswana and Antarctica rang out at 8.12am for three minutes to herald in the Olympic Games.

The Rev Brunel James said “It was great for Whitechapel Church to be part of this special day and to receive such recognition.”
