Bell Ringing

So that people are kept ‘in the know’ about what’s going-on in the Tower, we continue our Practice night on Wednesdays - 7:30 to 9:00 - and ring before Morning Service on the 1st and 3rd Sundays each month. We will be continuing our tradition of celebrating John Giles’ contribution to ringing in the neighbourhood with a toast to the good gentleman on Wednesday 21st. after ringing. Sad to say, we’ve broken the clapper on the Tenor Bell (the largest) so we’re only ringing on “the front six” at the moment !
