Bell Ringing -- St Andrew's Guild of Change Ringers
Founded in 1898, the ringers ring for services and weddings (if booked in advance). Practice is every Wednesday from 7.30 -- 9.00 pm.
The team is well equipped and keen to teach this rewarding skill. Just climb the tower on practice night to find a warm welcome in the ringing room.
For more details, contact Mr Patrick Rendell on 01458 253856.

Photos are from the recent restoration of the bells by John Taylor & Co (The Loughborough Bell Foundry who originally cast them in 1897)
Major maintenance and restoration work has now been completed on this 18 cwt ring of eight. The cast iron and steel bell frame have recently been cleaned and repainted, and all the bells lifted and their bearings have been cleaned or replaced. The clappers and crown staples have been restored after re-profiling. New weather proofing screens have been manufactured and fitted to the louvre openings.
