Neil Thomas has joined our staff after the closure of the Whitechapel Bellfoundry as a senior bell hanger – we welcome him.

Our future depends on training new craftsmen, and this week Kit Bardsley and Alex Davies joined us to begin their apprenticeships as bell hangers. We welcome them, hope they will be happy working with us, and look forward to watching their progress.
