Bellringing in Palace Gardens, Enfield
27 September 2008
Generously funded by the
Mayor of London's Open Rehearsal, the
bellringers of St Andrew's and St Mary's in Enfield, generously
assisted by ringers from across Middlesex, hosted the
Ring in Palace Gardens shopping centre, to promote bellringing
generally, and hopefully to attract some new recruits.
On a misty morning, starting to set up the miniring
The basic frame erected
Unloading the bells from the trailer in the service yard
Lifting the first pair of bells into position
Bells 3 and 4 lifted up
All set to go
A bellringer of the future?
Ringing in Palace Gardens as the Saturday shoppers stop and watch
We reckon about 150 people got to ring for the first time, about 500 leaflets
were handed out, and more than 3000 people saw the bells in action.
Starting to disassemble the ring
Lucy puts the last board into the trailer. Time for home!
