Ringing for Notre-Dame – Thursday 18th April 2019

Following the devastating fire at the Notre-Dame cathedral in Paris  on 15th April, the Archbishops of Canterbury & York and Prime Minister Teresa May asked for bells at churches and cathedrals across the UK to ring out in solidarity when possible on Thursday 18th April (Maundy Thursday).
