Having commissioned a peal board following the successful peal rung last May for the coronation of His Royal Highness King Charles lll, we agreed with our Vicar, who also happens to be a bell ringer, to dedicate the peal board at the main 10am service this morning. All the ringers who were able to attend the service came to the front, two of them holding the board as the Vicar dedicated it. Before doing so, he thanked the ringers publicly for ringing the bells week in week out. We also had ringers read the two lesions at the service.

For around the last four or five years, we have celebrated the work of the ringers in church in February, with ringing related hymns and ringers reading the lesson and taking the offertory up as well as a brief talk around bell ringing during the sermon slot.
