The Prince of Wales knows that Diss needs more bellringers - because Betty Baines told him so at Buckingham Palace on Friday.

He also knows about a bell being cast in memory of Mrs Baines’ late bellhanger husband Tony.

Mrs Baines, of Diss, was made MBE in the New Year Honours for her services to bellringing and was at the Palace, accompanied by sons Mark and Kevin and daughter-in-law Sharna, to receive her award.

“It was a really lovely day,” she said.
