BELL RINGING

The ten bells at St George's are fixed hemispherical, Ellacombe chimes, by Mears and Stainbank in 1919. They are unusual and are not traditional bells. The bells are played using a series of ropes on a framework in the Tower Room. The heaviest bell is called the Tenor and the lightest bell is called the Treble. Ropes used to play bellsThe bells can play hymns, both traditional and modern, and peals. The bells were installed as a memorial to those from St George's Church who died in the First World War. A marble memorial bears witness to this in the Church Porch. St George's Bell Ringing Group is a member of the British Carillon Society. This Society aims to promote the art of the carillon in the British Isles and enhance communications and friendship among carillonneurs. The Society is also a member of the World Carillon Federation. The bells we have at St George's are technically not Carillon bells - these need to have 23 or more bells usually played by a keyboard and pedals. However, the British Carillon Society has recognised that the bells at St George's make a worthy contribution, including being played regularly as well as the ability to play a wide selection of music. The Society has given St George's Bells the title of "Carillon Petite". St George's Bell Ringers ring before and after the 10am Sunday Service and at Weddings. There is no age restriction, but supervision and training are provided. For further information please contact:
