A Yatton church hosted an open weekend to give people an insight into bell-ringing.

The team at St Mary’s Church, in Church Road, gave visitors the opportunity to try their hand at the historic activity, otherwise known as campanology.

Ringing master Bernard North praised the successful open weekend.

He said: “We put on several demonstrations and there was lots of interest.

“Hopefully we’ll be able to train some new ringers.”

The group practises at St Mary’s Church every Tuesday from 7.30-9pm.
