You may have already heard that we, St Mary’s Bellringers, are asking for financial support to pay for modern, specialist training facilities to enable new ringers to learn more easily.   Full details of how the first stage of £10,000 will be spent may be found on this page.  The second stage, for a further £10,000, is to install full sound control for the bells (more on that stage later!).

The church is fully supportive of our project which will ensure we have enough bellringers for the next generation, but, unfortunately, is not in a position to offer direct financial assistance.   However, we hope that many of you, if you have not already done so, will feel able to contribute on an individual basis.   We have already raised over £8,500 so any help, however small, will help us reach our target!    Donations may be made by:

  • Cash or cheque (payable to ‘St Mary’s Barnes PCC’) – please put in a Gift Aid envelope clearly marked ‘BELLS’
  • online, with no fees charged, via this page.
