St John the Evangelist’s Parish Church, Kensal Green is situated in the London Borough of Brent and has two small turret-like towers adorning its West Front. Tony Fernandes, owner of Q.P.R. Football Club kindly offered to finance most of the cost of a new chime of eight bells (Bass Bell 2.5 cwts) and these have now been cast and installed. Played automatically with an Apollo Programmable Unit and electro-magnetic chiming hammers, the bells have added a welcome addition to the soundscape of this suburb of north-west London.
