Bellringers

Jon Beale - Captain of the Tower

Jon Beale - Captain of the Tower


St Peter’s has a ring of six bells and an active team of bellringers to ring them. The team ring for the 10am Sunday service, for weddings and funerals as requested, and for other special events. They also have a full set of 24 handbells, and are learning to ring those as well. The photograph shows the Tower Captain, Jon Beale. For more photographs go to the menu link Bell Ringing images.

Practice night is Thursdays from 7.30pm-9pm in church. Anyone is welcome to drop in then to meet the ringers, and for a drink afterwards. No previous experience is required – you can start learning to ring usually from about age 11 upwards, and you’re never too old to start! For more information, contact John on 01865 559600.
