Pucklechurch for their church celebration of the Queen’s 90th birthday on Sunday the 12th June. The bells and the ringing chamber had camera's installed and were displayed in the church with a projector screen and television. Angela Robb said several people showed interest to return and have a trial ring later? The cables were conveniently fed down the old clock weights route to the base of the tower and then fed out into the church to the DVR.
A 100ft and 3 X 50ft cables  were used.





Alan Coombs installed the cameras during the week previous to the Mangotsfield revels, they were installed for the first time using the churches own projector and screen in addition to the usual television screen for the Saturday June the 11th event.  Alan reports there was significant interest by all who viewed the bells and the ringing chamber. The camera's were installed in the bells and the ringing chamber. The route for the camera cables was through a rope hole in the ringing chamber floor to the church porch then  through the main door to the console at the rear.  4 X 50ft cables were used.

Wapley Agincourt Celebrations
Wapley was the first outing for the CCTV system and was a learning curve, Both camera's were installed and one camera was sufficiently near to use one cable and the additional camera with routing the cable around the bell frame two. The system roused a lot of interest amongst the people who attended the celebrations.
