Updates on Sprotbrough from Tim Wheeler (Tower Captain). 15 June 2017

As advised by the Architect, after this weekend, except for special services such as weddings, all Ringing will cease whilst the tower repairs are undertaken. The work is scheduled to last for 6 weeks. Thus Ringing is likely to re-commence early August.
