Story

Thank you for visiting #vernetbells

A ring of ten new bells for St George's Church, with a tenor weighing 261kg (5-0-15 in C) , was cast by John Taylor & Co of Loughborough and installed in April 2019. The bells were first rung for service on Palm Sunday. We are well on the way to our funding target, but fundraising continues. Please help if you can! We have begun teaching some local ringers, both French and British, and we look forward to welcoming many ringing visitors from the UK and beyond in the years to come. The dedication of the bells will be the centrepiece of a Fête des Cloches in Vernet on the weekend of 28th/29th September 2019.
