Weighty matters

THE BELL we’re having to replace in the Pulborough tower is seven cwt, not seven tonne (County Times South Downs edition, April 19).

I thought I’d better correct my mistake before someone informs the relevant authorities that we’re being cruel to young ringers aged ten to 13 in making them haul seven tonne weights around.

They are a tremendous set of youngsters, well on course to being better ringers than the older generation, not to mention being more accurate with their weights and measures. Many thanks to all who are supporting our fundraising - bells@potton.myzen.co.uk.
