Bell-Ringing and Church Tower Visit

“Open Tower” event being held on Sunday 10th Sept as part of the national heritage open days 7th-10th Sept with the Bell-Ringers at the St John the Baptist Church.

They will be opening the Tower which is normally inaccessible, after the Sunday morning service at approximately 10:45am until around midday on numbers of visitors. All faiths or none are welcome.

Small groups ~8 at a time will be taken up to see the bells and to see and hear demonstrations of bell-ringing. These groups will be made up on a first come, first served basis.

There will be opportunities for a brief taster “have-a-go” session, under instruction, at handling a bell. There will be a chance to join for a longer session on a Monday evening practice session if you express an interest.

Tea & coffee will be available and there will be a small display area at the rear of the church where groups will assemble before being called up the tower.
