During July last year, Red Kites vistied the church bells at Cotterstock which had been taken down for refurbishment; the bells have now been returned to Cotterstock Church, retuned and ready to be put back up in the tower. The church has also been donated a new church bell in memory of a lady called Rita, who had done a great deal for the village and community. The children have been back to Cotterstock Church to look at the refurbished bells and to watch a video of the new bell being made at the bell foundry.
