A complete overhaul is needed to modernize and revitalize the carillon. This work must include:
♦ replacement of the web of wires, cables, and rotating bars that connect the keyboard with the bell clappers
♦ replacement of bell support bolts, clappers, and headpieces for all bells
♦ a steel frame to re-mount the high bells
♦ retuning the middle-range Dutch bells
♦ a new playing console, and
♦ a new practice console to enable practice without disturbing the growing number of people now living in our neighbourhood.
This exciting project will be undertaken first. The work has begun, and we now await the return of our bells in 2021!
