Trisha’s story

As one of the qualified bellringing teachers at St Mary Barnes, in south west London, I am fully committed to the training of ringers. We constantly need to train new ringers and progress the skills of 'improvers' to ensure that our bells can be rung out in Barnes, for weddings, community and national events as well as for services.

We have already raised over £15,000 through a grant, donations from our own bellringers, donations from the general public and from an award. Some of this has been used to purchase two training bells (which ring silently but can be linked via sensors and a computer to emulate the bell sound through speakers or headphones!) and for new laptops for use with these training bells.

A further £5,000 is needed to complete our project for full ‘sound control‘ for the bell tower. This will limit the sound of the bells outside the tower enabling us to offer ‘silent’ training time for more advanced ringers without disturbing the neighbours. It will also mean those of us who train (frequently those who are over 70 years of age), will no longer need to climb under the bells before and after such a practice! Extra practice time will enable ringers to progress towards the standard of our experienced Friday night ringers who support us from outside the area.
