Two young bell ringers have been presented with certificates to mark a special songs of praise service at St Nicholas Church, Dereham.

Max Meeson, 7, and Maggie Harbour, 11, rang the bells at the songs of praise service on November 3 and received the certificates to honour their work.

Tower captain Chris Stebbings said: “We really like to encourage young ringers, they are our future. It is so good for them to have a hobby which extends them mentally as well as physically.

“During the course of their ringing career they will meet many kind, helpful and like-minded people.”
