> The last opportunity to ring the steel bells at Moseley is on January 15th from 12:00 -14:00 prior to their removal the following day. There will be a £3 charge per person.
> The bells will be replaced with a ring of 10 weighing 18 and a half hundredweight. Seven bells will be cast to G&J profiles to match 3 bells rescued from Greenock. All the work will be undertaken by Taylor's.
