VILLAGERS celebrated the return of their historic church bells at a re-dedication service at St Etheldreda's, Horley, in Oxfordshire in June.

The Rt Revd Colin Fletcher, the Bishop of Dorchester, led the service, where the Revd Dr Hugh White was licensed as a House for Duty Associate Priest in the Ironstone Benefice.

Cast by Bagley's of Chacombe in 1706 the four bells had marked Sunday worship and special events for almost 300 years when they were declared unsafe 25 years ago.

Work was carried out this winter and they were ready for a new team of ringers to try them out in March.
