Bell Ringers Wanted

We urgently need more ringers at St Dunstans, anyone between 12 and 112 can join us. If you have an hour to spare, why not give it a try? Our practice night is on Tuesday at 7.30, you will probably hear us! We will give you a tour of the Tower and Belfry, which houses our Peal of 8 bells. You could also help to wind our historic clock, that was made in 1856, by F. Dent. It strikes each hour on the Tenor, which weighs in at 21cwt.
