Bell ringers are marking the Alban Weekend next Saturday, June 18, by setting up a miniature bell frame and ring of bells in the city centre.

A mini-ring, known as the Maplestead mini-ring, will be outside the Alban Arena from midday until 4pm and it will be a chance for passers-by to meet the local bellringers, see what is involved in ringing and have a go if they wish.

Anyone who is interested and would like to see ringing on full size bells, will then be invited to a ‘taster session’ at St Stephen’s Church in Watling Street, from 2pm to 4pm the following day, Sunday, June 19.

Being ill sucks. No matter what’s got you down – the flu, a broken bone, diabetes, cancer – it’s a horrible place to be. Your body is weaker and less capable. The drugs you take mess with your mind and your moods and sometimes can make you feel even worse than when you started. Mental ill-health is no different. The brain is an organ, and like any organ, it doesn’t always function to the medical standard of “normal”. Mine certainly doesn’t.
