Do you love hearing the bells ring in Barnes?

We are asking for financial support to install modern teaching facilities.  Thanks to generous donations from the community, we can now embark on the second phase of our project to install ‘sound control’ for the tower.  

  • Sound control limits the sound of the bells outside the tower whilst allowing the ringers to still hear their bells inside.  Extra practice time will help learners progress towards the standard of our experienced Friday night band!
  • (Phase 1) Training/dumb Bells enable faster and easier learning, ring silently, but can be linked via sensors and computers to emulate the bell sound through speakers & headphones so that we can enhance the 'heritage skill' learning experience.  They are normally used as a single bell.
We raised over £5k ourselves through our own donations, a grant from the Surrey Association of Church Bellringers and a national Ringing Teachers' award for 'Inspirational Leadership in Ringing'.

Any donation you can give will help us reach our final target!

Further details about the project may be found via http://www.stmarybarnes.org/fundraising-training-bellringers/ and you can read a recent article about bellringers and bellringing on http://www.stmarybarnes.org/b-is-for-bellringers/ .

Donors are invited to visit a training session one Saturday by arrangement.
