Will the bells ring again?

It's good news that there's a campaign to get the carillon at St.Edward's Parish Church working again. This excellent device would ring out traditional tunes at regular intervals, but has been silent for a few years.

I gather it has suffered from 'lack of regular maintenance'. I'd heard that, in fact, the Victorian equipment currently lies in many pieces - a previous attempt to repair it having been halted in mid-dismantlement when it was realised the work had not been sanctioned by the proper authorities.

Let's hope that the eventual repairers can put the bits back together again.
