Happy New Year to all from Tedburn St Mary Bell Ringers.
We rang out the old year with muffled bells, and welcomed 2017 with a full peal. Afterwards the church wardens treated us to sherry and nibbles.
We look forward to more outings and social events, and hosting our competition towards the end of the year. Happy New Year to all our friends.
