I am writing to express my sincere appreciation for the wonderful support I
received from the bell ringers of Leicester and Leicestershire, to mark the
moment when The Queen became our longest serving Monarch.
I know that we had more than 70 churches taking part on the evening of the
9th September ringing out a most wonderful tribute to Her Majesty. This was a
tremendous response for which I am most grateful.
When sending my message of Loyal Greetings to The Queen I was able to
say that this historic moment was being celebrated in Leicestershire with a
special service at our Cathedral and with church bells ringing out across
our City and County.
The Leicester Mercury ran a nice article ahead of the evening and BBC TV
featured the story on their early evening news bulletin, which meant the
initiative had a good media profile too.
This tribute would not have been possible
without the support of so many of you, which
for some I know meant a quick dash between
churches to make this possible! Well done to
you all and thank you!!
Yours sincerely
Jennifer, Lady Gretton
HM Lord-Lieutenant
