Bell ringing is GREAT FUN!

  • A unique hobby for whole families from 9 – 90
  • Very sociable group participation — you'll make friends for life
  • A craft almost 400 years old practised throughout the British Isles and in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Southern Africa and the USA — plenty of scope for travel !
  • Service to the Church — you will soon be able to make an important contribution
  • Lots of brainwork if you like it — but this is optional
  • Healthy light exercise — you don't need to be big and strong
  • It helps if you have a sense of rhythm and reasonable coordination — you don't have to be a musician
