 +If you wondered what was happening with the church bells chiming rather than ringing in the normal way on Wednesday morning; tower captain Jeff Knipe and friends organised a "Bell Experience"​ for the children of Shepton School. ​ The experience included ringing hand bells and climbing the tower to chime the church bells. ​ A tower bell simulator was erected in the church to enable all the children to safely have the experience of actually pulling on a bell rope.  Under the direction of Jeff in the pulpit the children practiced ringing a tune on Hand Bells, Jeff and Lesley have kindly offered to continue the experience with the training of a School hand bell ringing team.
