The bells ring out across East Devon to celebrate St George's Day.

Archant

The sound of bells were heard across East Devon to celebrate St George’s Day.

Bell ringers at towers in Awliscombe, Axminster, including Awliscombe, Axminster, Combe Raleigh, Dalwood, Dunkeswell, Feniton, Honiton, Luppitt, Shute and Sidbury rang their bells to mark the occasion.

Dunkeswell ringers got off to an early start, ringing at 8am in the morning before going to work. At Dalwood the East Devon ladies group rang a very fine quarter peal of Plain Bob Doubles.

Pictured is the successful quarter peal band attired in red and white and carrying their St George’s flags. From the left: Delie Perry (Hawkchurch), Maureen Davey (Shute), Anne Bailey (Sidmouth), Kathy Matthews (Colyton), Lisa Clarke and Janet Reynolds (Combe Raleigh).
