Tom Sandham (above left), gave a talk on the history of Badsey's church bells to the inaugural 'members night' of the Badsey Society at the Pub in a Club recently.

Tom, a long time bell-ringer, also reminded the twenty-five strong gathering, that new bell-ringers were always wanted. There was no limit regarding age or strength, so almost anyone could take it up. If anyone was interested they could come along to the church on a Monday evening which is practice night, or contact Hilary Bolton on 830246.

The Badsey Society 'members night' is the brainchild of Shirley Tutton, and due to its first meeting proving positive, despite it being a wet, dark evening, further bi-monthly meeting will possibly take place. The next one being in early May.
