Sunday Bell Ringing

(Posted on behalf of Diana Day) The bell ringers met up last week to see if there was support for some ringing to begin again at St Giles Church, Dallington. I’m pleased to say that we rang on Sunday and hope to ring again in two weeks time. This follows the pattern set before, of ringing for 2nd and 4th Sundays. Practices are not possible at present and will not resume until the Autumn at the earliest. One of the ropes broke and the bell has set itself, so this has to be tipped over, safely. This will probably be done on Wednesday, you will just hear the bell ringing until it stops by itself when fully down. Diana Day

Ringers Return
Photo of Dallington Church TowerNo, the Swan Inn has not changed its name, the Bellringers have taken up ringing again at St Giles Church, Dallington. With churches now open and Services occurring, we are chiming the bells on Sundays. We are only allowed to ring for 15 minutes, social distancing restricts us to alternate bells only to sound out. There will be no practice on Mondays for the foreseeable future, no visiting bands, but it’s a start. Diana Day

Ringing Remembers

(Posted on behalf on Diana Day)

Over the past few years we have all been thinking about WW1. At Dallington tower we rang to commemorate the 100 years since the Armistice and Peace in 1918, on 11/11/2018.

A ringer from Rainham in Kent designed this badge for all ringers to wear in future years especially on Remembrance Day. We have put our orders in and await the arrival. Diana DayBadge
