So sorry to hear of difficulties and problems - not all of us in the CofE are difficult!

On a positive note the Bishop of Norwich, Rt Rev Graham James, and I rang before the service at Blofield on Sunday morning - when was the last time a Dioesan Bishop & Incumbent rang together in a Sunday? (We did manage the Diocesan Bishop, Rural Dean and Curate ringing after an Institution at Acle in 2008, but that was midweek).

  Having been running this list for a number of years (I set it up in 2002) I think it is now time to pass the running of it on to somebody else.

  I have been involved in a long-running and very acrimonious dispute with ringers and clergy in York. As a result of this, I no longer have the energy or the confidence to go around getting permission to inspect bells, or indeed to do any ringing in this area. I no longer feel able to trust the CofE, and try to avoid all contact with it so far as is possible.

  I would like to publicly thank those who have been so encouraging and willing to share their expertise over the years I have been involved in bell history - in particular Chris Pickford, Dave Cawley and George Dawson.

  If anyone would be interested in taking over the management of the list can they please email me off-list.
