Ring for the King

by | 9 July 2023 | Gainsborough, Heritage

Gainsborough bellringers rose to the challenge and made a joyous sound on each day of the Coronation weekend.

In all, 14 ringers were involved, including two new recruits and four regular supporters from other towers. The new ringers performed together with the others for the first time after three months’ tuition, ‘learning the ropes’.

The bells sounded on Friday before and after the All Saints’ Tea Party, on Saturday afternoon following the Coronation Service, for the morning service on Sunday and again on the Coronation Bank Holiday.

Monday’s ringing included a special performance to celebrate the Coronation of King Charles III: a Quarter Peal of Grandsire Triples, which took 47 minutes to complete.

If you are curious about bellringing and might like to learn to ring, please contact the ringers via the Parish Administrator on 07395 942778 or email allsaintsgainsborough@mail.com.
