St George's Church, Hyde appeal for bell ringers

An appeal to increase the number of bell ringers and keep a historic tradition alive has been launched by St.George's Church in Hyde.
Bell ringing is one of the oldest forms of Communication, it informs the Parish  of church services taking place, weddings, funerals, and in times of trouble was the first warning of invasion.
 
The first full peal of eight bells at St. George’s, was in 1853 with the aid of a public subscription. During the summer of 1920 the bells were taken down and a new steel framework was erected and the bells recast. The Tenor bell actually weighs 919kg.
 
At the moment there are just about enough ringers to keep the tradition going. Unfortunately, many a time, there are only six people available to ring. If anyone would like to try this skill, you are welcome to come to the church's practice night on Monday's at 7:30pm.
