Relocating Of Bells
Do You Know of a Church that Might be Closing for Worship?
If you know of any bells in Yorkshire that might be in Churches which may be closing for regular Worship, please can you inform the BRF Secretary. This way we can keep up to speed with developments to work with our partners to keep Bells within Yorkshire and make use of them elsewhere.
