BELL PEAL

There was a successful Bell Peal on the morning of Saturday 4 April 2009 as part of the celebrations for the 100th Anniversary of the refurbishment of St Andrews and the bells being re-cast after the disastrous fire.

A full Bell Peal is to ring every possible sequence of the bells once, which consists of more than 5000 call changes and consequently takes between 3-4 hours. We are very fortunate that the Ringers from the Yorkshire Association of Change Ringers came to celebrate and acknowledge this Anniversary.

COME AND HAVE A GO!

Come and ring the bells at St Andrew's Church, Kirkby Malzeard.

New recruits of any age, of either sex, and of any, or even no, religious conviction are needed. First Class Instruction is available.

One young recruit is now part of the regular team and is doing really well, and another is well on the way. But, owing to recent retirements (mainly due to the 30 steps up to the Belfry), more people are needed. In fact it could be said that we are desperate for more volunteers!

Do come and join us.

Come and have a go at the practice sessions on Thursday evenings from 7.00 pm to 8.00 pm. Further information can be obtained from 01765 658438.

Don't let the ancient Art of Bellringing die out in our village. Come and give it a go!
