Of course I agree, but I honestly don't believe that the CCC listing
proposals are a major threat - the problem with them seems to be very bad PR
regarding their launch which has alienated the trade and many ringers. I
think far more important factors which could lead to a reduction in the
number of bells being cast are a general lack of money in the CofE and the
increase in the reuse of second-hand bells.
