BELL-RINGERS are rejoicing after securing second place in a countywide competition.
Axbridge’s St John the Baptist Church bell-ringers came second in a competition held by the Bath and Wells Diocesan Association of Change Ringers.
The competition was held on Saturday and saw the best 17 teams in the diocese play in three rounds held in Bridgewater, Chedzoy and Shapwick.
Axbridge’s branch reached the final where they were narrowly beaten by a few points to Bathwick Tower.
Roy Shallish, captain of Axbridge’s branch said: “We are quite happy to finish second.
“Having come that way and being so close and to miss out by such a small margin is a bit disappointing.”
