One needs to be brave to start fund-raising for a brand new ring of bells in the current economic climate — even within the City of London. We wish the project to restore bells to St Dunstan-in-the-West, Fleet Street well and look forward to reporting on its progress. In fact the tower will be open, by special arrangement, on Ringing World Centenary Day — Saturday, 26th March. You may wish to combine a visit to St Dunstan with a walking tour of other City churches (see previous item).

We have received many enquiries during the past week or two about when readers can expect to receive the Centenary tickets that they have ordered. Finishing touches are being made to the brochure this week and we intend to post tickets out with the brochure early in February. Thereafter we will keep you up to date with any further developments in plans for the day via our website at
