Bell-ringing at St. Peter's
There have been bells rung in the tower of St. Peter's since the early 17th Century. In 1911 the old ring of six bells was recast and augmented to eight by Gillett and Johnson (Bellfounders and Clockmakers of Croydon, England) and tuned on the five-tone Simpson Principle.
The bells are rung for most Evensongs at 6pm (held once a month) and special services such as Easter, St. Peter's Day, Carol Services and Feast Days. Bell-ringers are available for weddings held at weekends and during the week by special arrangement - a wonderful addition to any wedding ceremony.
The Bell-ringers practice on Tuesday evenings at 7pm and we are always glad to have new members join our team. No experience is required and we are a friendly group who are keen to learn together. Bell-ringing provides gentle exercise and makes a joyous noise, beloved by the Mountsorrel community.
Are you over 10 and under 100?
Do you want to get fit?
Do you have an hour to spare?
If so come to St. Peter's and learn to bell ring. The exercise is gentle, you will find us a friendly bunch and we are all learning together. We sometimes ring for services and weddings.
