Scope and content

This savings account with the Midland Bank was used to earn interest on monies received by the bellringers, for ringing for weddings, who during the period of this savings account used the money to buy new ropes when needed and grease to lubricate the gudgeons and bearings in the belfry where bells are hung on the bell frame. The photographs show the pages in the savings book and the old gudgeons and bearings. When the bells were restored in 2006 part of the work included hanging the bells in sealed bearings. From August 24th 1972 the bank changed from using a savings book to record money in and out and interest to statements.
