Jim Heading who installed the new bell ropes in Ashover

Church bell-ringers in Ashover are ringing in the new year in style...

The ringing chamber at All Saints Church now boasts a new set of blue and gold bell ropes replacing strings which are around 20 years old.

The ropes have cost £1,750 and ringers are planning fundraising events to cover the costs.

The ropes were ordered over a year ago. Tower captain Barry Watts said: “There are only two or three companies in the country making bell ropes and so you have no option but to wait.”
