The founding meeting of the South African Guild was held in Grahamstown during the first weekend of July 1988. Dedication of the bells and new frame at Grahamstown cathedral marked the completion of the first Guild project to ensure that all rings of bells in South Africa were in good condition. This first part of the article takes us up to the completion of the Grahamstown restoration.
