People have been complaining that the treble stay has deep set for quite a while but upon inspection it seemed to be fine and was not getting worse. However recently one of the two fixing bolts was found loose and when the unit was looked at it was also cracked. This is where the stay team (Maurice and Mike) swing into action. Maurice has copied the pattern in a nice bit of ash and Mike has fitted the unit. Little tight in first offering but then after a tiny fettle the replacement is ready for action. Many thanks to both gentlemen.
Rang for the joint parish Sunday service today which was taken by the Bishop of Aston, the Rt Revd Anne Hollinghurst. Nice to be able ring all six for a special service such as this.
