Tim Havenith's focus articles on our local community groups continue with a look at St Mary's Bellringers.
We are the bellringers of St Mary's Church, but trained bellringers are welcomed almost anywhere that there are bells hung for traditional ringing in the English style.
We practise every Friday evening from 7.30pm to 9pm and then ring for Sunday morning services from 9.15 to 10am.
The bells are also rung for many special occasions, Christmas, weddings and the forthcoming Platinum anniversary of our Queen.
We are happy to train new recruits and anyone who wants to find out more can get in touch to arrange a visit to the tower.
