The refurbishment of the bells will create a wonderful legacy not only for the church but for the future ringing in St Mary’s. Our bells have now been restored to ring out for at least the next 100 years.

Following the Test Ring on 28th November we were informed that they are now said to be one of the best peals of 6 bells in the East Dorset Branch of the Salisbury Diocesan Guild. We are thrilled to feel that the outcome is all that we had had planned for.
