The church Website has a page about the tower in the History section; it has a small photo of the tower, and mentions the 1969 addition of a "small carillon", which makes itself heard every 15 minutes during the day.

The Dutch Wikipedia article about the town has a photo of the church and a paragraph about it, but does not mention any bells.

The Wikimedia Commons category for the building has several photos of the tower.
