Because of the restrictions of the Coronavirus crisis, church bell ringing was not possible at all during full lockdown, and even now is very restricted. Captain of Southover bell ringers, Tom Reeves said “This brief fifteen minute ring will be a small symbol of hope for a return to normality, and it’s good to be able to express our gratitude to those who have done so much during the pandemic”
