Charity Commission Information

The Southwell and Nottingham Diocesan Guild Bell Fund exists to assist parishes with the restoration of their bells.

Help can be provided in several ways both directly and through the Guild Bell Repair Committee:

  • Advising parishes on the best way to proceed with repairs, restorations and augmentations

  • Giving grants towards work being undertaken by approved contractors

  • Donating good quality second hand bells or fittings (when available)

The BF will consider giving grants for:

  1. The repair and restoration of existing rings of bells.

  2. The provision of new rings of bells.

  3. The augmentation of rings of bells.

  4. The provision of sound control systems for rings of bells.

Outside the scope of the BF:

  • Replacement of minor fittings (ropes, stays,etc.)

  • Repair work to towers.

The Bell Fund generally tries to give grants in the order of 10% - 12.5% of the total cost of work before VAT, but this depends upon the level of funds available to the Trustees at the time.
