The Trust has been closely involved with several projects to install bells into churches in Australia. One of the latest projects is at Menangle, NSW where a ring of six bells has been installed. The Trust donated the tenor bell (which came from Rode Hill in Somerset). We also located bells the treble, 2nd, 4th and 5th. The bells were rung for the first time on Christmas Day 2004.

We located two bells which have been used to augment the ring to eight during 2011. These bells came from Charminster and Upper Beeding.
