Tony Smith’s appeal for bell-ringers (18/11/16) and his destroying bell-staves took me back 30 years when taking over my father’s small business.

My bell-ringing bank manager warned me of the perils of self-employment and irregular orders, but I was soon busy ... replacing those bell-staves he regularly broke!

Novice bell-ringers boost Britain’s GDP!
