Weʼre raising £15,000 to Install The Happisburgh Time and Tide Bell on the Beach

Happisburgh, United Kingdom

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

The Happisburgh Time and Tide Bell has now been delivered to the village and we are now looking for funding to pay for the permanent installation of the bell on our wonderful beach. This will be the site of one of the bells around the British coastline rung by the sea at high tide. The rise of the water moves the clapper to strike the bell. Played by the movement of the waves, the bell creates a varying, gentle, musical pattern.

All donations received are held by the Parish Council.

This community arts project is the brain child of sculptor and musician Marcus Vergette.

It includes huge possibilities for design, imagination, philosophy, expression, poetry, music, dance, as well as many different forms of art and is a new type of public art model which will engage with all ages.

The beauty of this stretch of coastline is only matched by its long history of human habitation and, sometimes, embattlement. The oldest human footprints ever found outside of Africa were discovered here on Happisburgh beach. Dating from 900,000 years ago when the North sea was a land mass connecting Britain to main land Europe a gentle tide of settlers passed this spot.

Today the area attracts visitors from all over the world. The installation of a Happisburgh Time and Tide Bell would mark an appropriate point for reflection and inspiration.

All donations small or large are gratefully received.
