The above is the first peal on the bells since they were rehung by the late G. R. Banks, and also the first since 1862, or just over twenty-six years ago, and it is worthy of notice that it was rung on the thirty-fourth anniversary of the battle of the Alma, in which two of the performers in the above peal took part, viz. : Messrs. Hoverd and Jones. The ringers wish to thank Mr. G. Longhurst, steeple-keeper, for having everything in readiness for them.
