The bells rang out in Morpeth to herald a new Mayor.

Morpeth Clocktower Bellringers sounded a full peal on Saturday to welcome Nic Best to the role. Eight ringers completed 5,024 ‘true changes’ of the challenging London Surprise Major over two-and-a-half hours. Ringing Master Christopher Teasdale, who has recently been elected to the Membership of the Ancient Society of College Youths, the ultimate accolade in the ringing world, organised the peal.

The bells will ring at the opening of Fair Day on Sunday and the Clock Tower will be open to the public from 10.30am.
