Wrexham St Gile church bells need £10,000 repair work

There are concerns about the future of Wrexham parish church's bells which have rung out over the town centre for almost 300 years.

Bell ringers at St Giles have launched a £10,000 appeal to fund repairs, saying they now need an overhaul as they were last restored 60 years ago.

The church has 10 bells which were cast in 1726 and weigh up to 1.2 tonnes.

Ringing master Ian Maycock said the bell frame was going rusty and the bells' clappers needed replacing.
