Calling all potential campanologists!

Mark Rowland from Wray has kindly agreed to lead & train potential bell-ringers at the Church .

The sessions have now started and for the first few weeks will be held on a Thursday evening at St. Margaret's Church in Hornby, as the bells there are lighter & easier to pull than the bells at St. James the Less.

If you have been quietly nursing a desire to learn about bell-ringing, now is your opportunity!

If you are interested please contact: Linda Kirkby at lindakirkby@aol.com

                                                or Margaret Whatmough at maggie.whatmough@gmail.com or on 07796 661891
