BELL RINGERS NEEDED - practices paused for now.
For several years we have been very lucky to have a successful band of ringers in the Harting Parish Church. However, with ringers moving on and others off to University sadly, our numbers have fallen. We urgently need to recruit or find new ringers.
If you would like to 'have a go' please come to our Tuesday evening practice at 7.30pm. Do come and have a look around the bells in the belfry and see our bells 'in situ' and watch the ringers in action.
