Save The Chimes; The Beating Heart Of Sandwich

This petition had 4,192 supporters


In Sandwich, Kent the bells of St. Peter’s church have chimed on the hour and at a quarter past the hour for hundreds of years.

They are the Beating Heart Of Sandwich.

Due to a complaint to Dover District Council by one resident, the chimes face being silenced from 11.00pm until 7.00am each day, ending centuries of tradition.

The feeling by the vast majority of Sandwich residents is that this is the “thin end of the wedge” and if the ban is allowed to go through unchallenged, it will begin the erosion of centuries old traditions in our beautiful medieval town.

We ask that Dover District Council listens to the wishes of the majority of Sandwich residents and allows the chimes to continue as they have done for centuries.
