       It was lovely to hear the bells pealing out on Sunday morning. They have been missed a lot!

Really pleased to hear that the bells are back.  I have missed them on my visits to my dad - especially when I have been out trying to tame his garden!!  I look forward to hearing them next week.

Just wanted to say how good it was to hear the church bells proclaim 2013! Probably psychological but the refettled bells sound clearer and louder. Thank you to the New Years Eve ringers and our team who ring at other times. I missed the bells when they were removed for maintenance as I missed the strike of the church clock. The accuracy of the mechanical church clock amazes me. I believe this is helped by its size as the larger mechanical watches and clocks are, the easier it is to achieve accuracy hence 'Big Ben' :)
