People can strike Happisburgh's Time and Tide bell and hear its amazing sound on Easter Sunday.

The event is being held to raise funds towards the erection and installation of the bell on the beach. It is being kept at Happisburgh school until then.

As part of a community arts project, it is one of only 12 bells to be installed around the British coastline that will be rung by the sea at high tide.

The rise of the water moves the clapper to strike the bell and played by the movement of the waves, the bell creates a varying, gentle, haunting musical pattern.

Robert Payne, chairman of the Happisburgh Time and Tide group, said: 'Sunday will be an opportunity for residents and visitors alike to strike the bell. We just ask for a donation to help towards the installation of the bell on the beach.'

The Ring-A-Thon is from 11.30am to 3.30pm.
