Calling all potential campanologists!
Mark Rowland from Wray has kindly agreed to lead & train potential bell-ringers at the Church .
This group will meet on either a Monday or Wednesday evening (to be decided) from 7pm to 8pm.
The sessions for the first two 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!
Please register your interest with Linda Kirkby at email@example.com
or Margaret Whatmough at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 07796 661891
