This is how our bells advisor likes to work. He likes to be involved from the planning 
stages of the project, advising on whether he thinks the plans are suitable for the tower 
right up to the completed installation. He has advised us on who to contact for quotes for 
the bell work, joinery work, clocks, lighting, health and safety (minimum width of staircase 
to ringing gallery etc.), sound control and many other points that the PCC would never 
have thought of.
