From the Rector: Congratulations to Ms Philippa Lamphee who received the “Citizen of the Year” award at the Walkerville Council on June 22 2016. This award acknowledged the outstanding service of ringing the bells and tending to the historical clock in the St Andrew’s Anglican Church Bell Tower.
The Citizen of the Year Awards are proudly presented by the Australia Day Council of South Australia, sponsored by San Remo, and administered by local councils.
Philippa, the longest standing Campanologist volunteer with 56 years of service has taught numerous other volunteers, and rung the bells for regular Sunday Services, Weddings and Community Events such as Anzac Day.
The Walkerville Community has heard the 6 Whitechapel bells, and chimes from the J.W Benson clock installed in 1886. These familiar sounds have echoed out over many years and continue to do so. The tunes which are not merely mechanical but seem to travel through the airwaves with a sense of history, stability and soul.

Love and prayers.
