Chime time!

PUPILS at a West Lancashire primary school have been learning the ropes - literally - of an unusual extra-curricular activity.

For in addition to more mundane after-school pursuits, such as netball, rugby, cross country, choir, tennis and even sewing, the youngsters at Tarleton Holy Trinity CE Primary can now try their hand at bell-ringing!

The new campanology club (that's noting to do with tents but the technical name for bell-ringing!) is the idea of headteacher Stephen Smith and sees interested pupils ascending the bell tower of the neighbouring Holy Trinity Church every Tuesday to have a go at ringing the church bells.

The youngsters are then put through the paces in the ancient art under the guidance of Father Nicholas and Father Martin.

Mr Smith said: “At the moment they are just ‘learning the ropes' but I'm sure they will soon be ringing in rounds!”
