Test Ringing of the New Bells


Excitement gripped the church last Thursday for the first test ringing of the new bells and what a wonderful sound we heard!  Using the webcam we were able to see the ringers in the ringing chamber and the bells swinging. It was a marvellous sight. All went well. There will be no regular ringing, however, until the Dedication Service, on Sunday, 19th March, when the Bishop of Bath and Wells and Deputy Lieutenant will be coming. We have been planning this and we have decided to dedicate the carillon during the morning service and the ringing bells in the afternoon so that the whole day can be a time of celebration.

A group of very happy bellringers!
