The Salisbury Guild certainly has prayers for the re-dedication of 
bells in our service book. I am sure that if Robin Peirce would like 
to contact either our Guild Secretary Anthony Lovell-Wood, or our PRO
Ivan Andrews (who is a lay-preacher) they would be more than happy to 
help. The web address is http://www.sdgr.org.uk.
