Sympathy for bell ringers
I SYMPATHISE with the bell ringers of March in that they received a complaint about their practices.
This has been the tradition in the town since the 1640s.
Being a former bell ringer at March I was well aware of campanological developments in the country and it was very rare to hear of complaints.
Complaints generally arise from people moving into communities and choosing to live near a church.
If people select a house with a tower rising virtually from their back garden and they do not like bells, it is discreet before moving to inquire if the bells are rung.

I once had a complaint about March bells. However, the complainant’s daughter began showing and interest in how bell ringing was done.
Promptly I seized the opportunity and taught her how to handle a bell.
