Please allow me to introduce myself, my name is Becky Dunnett and I am the

Managing Director of Mendip Ropemakers Limited.

We are a relatively new bell rope manufacturer, established in 2012 and
based near Taunton in Somerset. Despite advertising in The Ringing World,
various association reports and magazines, we are still not well known in
many parts of the UK.

Over the last four years our company has gone from strength to strength,
supplying ropes to towers throughout the UK and internationally within
countries such as Australia, Canada, USA and South Africa. In 2014 we moved
to a brand new premises allowing us to grow considerably and in 2015 we
were awarded the ‘New Business of the Year Award’ by the Somerset Chamber
of Commerce; an achievement we are all very proud of.

Business has been good and over the past four years we have been steadily
manufacturing bell ropes to the highest of standards. June of this year saw
the EU Referendum and unfortunately following on from this we have seen a
fall in the number of bell rope orders due to the uncertainty that
currently surrounds our country.

Over the last few decades the availability of bell ropes has been rather
difficult due to a lack of reliable manufacturers and increasing delivery
times. Starting Mendip Ropemakers in 2012 was hopefully a remedy to this.

Unfortunately, due to a lack of new, incoming orders we are again at risk
of losing another supplier and I am writing to ask if you could ‘SPREAD THE
WORD’ amongst your association! We are offering very competitive prices and
extremely fast lead times for complete sets and individual bell ropes and
would be grateful of the support of all Churches and bell ringers who are
yet to hear about us.

I thank you in advance for your support and hope that in the future we can
keep the bells ringing with some Mendip Ropemakers bell ropes!

Becky Dunnett (Managing Director)
