We are a small band of enthusiastic bell ringers. We ring for Sunday services, weddings, some funerals and national events both happy and sad. For example, in 2022 we rang for the Queen Elizabeth’s platinum jubilee, the death of the Queen and the proclamation of King Charles III. We are a very friendly group and welcome anyone who is interested in learning a new hobby and meeting new people. You don't need to attend church or be physically strong to be a bellringer. You just have to be able to climb the stairs to the ringing room. Ringing provides gentle physical and mental exercise and is a fantastic way to connect with your community, make new friends, and enjoy a traditional and very British pastime.
A few years ago we were pleased to teach two youngsters to ring as part of their DofE Award. Bell-ringing can qualify for the 'Skill' section or for the 'Volunteering' section of the award at Bronze, Silver and Gold levels. In order to use ringing as a DofE Skill it is necessary to show a progression in your ringing standard over the required timescale. To qualify for the Volunteering section you must assist with service ringing and other events as required by your tower.
