Tower Announcements

ST BARNABAS PIMLICO. The bells are now readily available for visiting bands. But, the ringers must be experienced ringers. No stay benders please. Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.     [5003]

ST CLEMENT DANES. For many years the arrangements for visiting bands were undertaken mostly by one person. This has now become impossible and we are having to change the system in order not to reduce the amount of ringing that takes place. This means that we will now charge for staff to cover attending to visiting bands. These staff will all be bell ringers. The charges will be £25 for an hour and a half. The peal fee will be raised to 8 per ringer and if a peal is lost the charge will be £15 per hour. Please email This email address is being protected from spambots.
