Bell Ringers

St Mary’s has an active bellringing team who practise on a Monday night and ring for both morning service and evensong on Sundays. We are always happy to introduce new members to the band; if you are interested more information, including contact details, can be found on our page on the local Guild website, located here: http://southwelldg.org.uk/tower/?id=99
