History

2001 Bell, which formerly came from Lydd School, was reported to have an amateur swing chiming hanging with lever, although was out of use.
2006 A single bell by John Warner (origin unknown) was donated by Alistair Coney in memory of his mother Rosemary. At that point no decision had been made about whether to retain the existing 9" bell.
