Spring flowers adorned Ixworth Church for the Dedication Service held this afternoon and led by Bishop Clive. A congregation of approximately 75 people listened to a witty yet thoughtful reflection by the Bishop in his sermon on the lines of the hymn 'Rejoice again, I say rejoice' - complete with improvised banter with George Pipe, much to everyone's amusement. The newly appointed Tower Captain Danny Willis received a symbolic bellrope and the celebrations were completed afterwards with tea and scones and a bit of ringing - watched on CCTV by those who were more tempted by the tea.
