Music and Worship

The six bells at St George’s Church were originally made by Mears & Stainbank of the renowned Whitechapel Foundry in London. They were re-cast and re-hung in 1910 by Gillett & Johnstone of Croydon using the same original bells. Tuned in the key of G Sharp, the bells are very bright and tuneful, the lightest being about 2cwt. and the heaviest 8cwt. and having long ropes they are reputed to be ‘difficult to ring‘! Apart from routine maintenance they are still the original bells which says much for the founders’ skill.
Bell ringing itself takes a great deal of practice to become really proficient. Practice takes place at St George’s church on Thursday evenings 8pm until 9pm when we practise for forthcoming services. We try to ring whenever required at weddings, funerals, etc. and are a very dedicated team. However, some of us are getting older, having started fifty or sixty years ago and so we always need and welcome new recruits in order to keep up this ancient art in this beautiful church. So do come and join us.
