Complaints of Bell Rings Causes Alarm


by Rachael Grant

Bell ringing could be a thing of the past if complaints to Suffolk Coastal District Council in England have their way.

There have since been reports of investigations by environmental health officers.

When asked to comment, the council said they had no choice but to investigate the complaints.

Mark Pritchard, a conservative MP representing The Wreckin in Shropshire, is trying to fight to stop the protests against the bell ringing, and vows to do what he can to keep the five century old tradition alive.

Rev, Nigel Hartley, the vicar of the church in question, St Peter and Paul’s, says that the implications, if this is taken seriously, will be widespread.
