Most people within earshot of St. Andrews will be aware that the repairs to the bell clappers are largely completed and five of the bells are now back in use.The sixth bell, the tenor, has proved to be a bit problematical in that the repair involved "forge welding ", which involves both parts being heated up in the forge before they are put together and welded. This has now been done as can be seen from the photographs, and the final stage of the repair is now in hand, so hopefully, the village will soon hear all six bells again!

Thank you once again to our sponsors who have made this possible.
