HELP WANTED PLEASE
Church bells are rung in the village for special occasions and only because people have volunteered their time and talent (often from outside the village), to enable this to happen.
Calverley "tower" are looking for new bell ringers who can commit to regular practise sessions. Practise night is Thursday evenings (with bellringing also needed for Sunday service).
11 November 2018 is the centenery of the first Armistice Day and it is hoped that people from Calverley could ring the bells in Calverley tower once more.
If you think that you may be able to help, please contact Maurice Calvert [email protected]
