The Elders and the Congregation of St Mary’s in the Wood United Reformed Church continued the tradition of ringing the Pancake Bell in the Morley yesterday.

The original bell, dated 1694, is no longer available following the devastating fire of the church building which happened in June 2009.

But the congregation and friends of the church rang another bell on the steps in Commercial Street to celebrate Shrove Tuesday.

A pancake lunch followed the historic ceremony along with a short service of remembrance.
