After months of silence, the bells of York Minster will sound out the joy of Christ’s Resurrection on Easter Sunday.
Volunteer ringers have offered to help out in the belfry for the most important Christian church service of the year.
The Minster is trying to recruit a salaried head or captain of the Bell Tower to find and lead a new team of volunteers, after the last team of 30 ringers was sacked. The former ringers will be welcome to apply to join the new team.
The row last October centred around ‘safeguarding issues’ with a member of the team. The team member concerned has never been convicted of any offence.
