Three of our young ringers at have been changing things outside the bell tower this week.
In a morning of hard graft, Angus Firth, Alfie Swinton and George Rees made an early start to the church’s Spring clean. Storm Malik put paid to our plans to oil the external doors and so instead, they sanded floors, freed stuck doors, added hinges to the disabled access ramp, polished and oiled the gate bolts and put a shine to the eagle lectern.
They’ve done a brilliant morning of work which has left the church a good deal smarter – and earned themselves Duke of Edinburgh points into the bargain.
And then, with no prompting, they hoovered up all the dust!
(St Andrew’s church is now open to visitors on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from about 10 am till 2 pm)
