Who are we?
People who enjoy meeting together in order to ring our church bells.
The members of the ringing team come principally from within our own church family: Tom and Christine Langton, Murray and Bronwyn Smith, Lesley Hill, Richard Portwood Jnr, Richard Phipps, Anne Sladen, Richard and Denise Black.
We also have help with our practice nights and ringing for special events from other ringers within the local deanery.
Who are we for?
“Every church shall be provided with at least one bell to ring people to service.”
(Canon ‘F8’ of the Church of England)
What do we do?
Ring the bells for services. Recruit and train other ringers. Maintain the bells. Encourage the art of change ringing. Ring for weddings and other special occasions.
When and where do we meet?
At the bell tower on Friday evenings at 7.30pm for a 90 minute practice and teaching session. We also attend Nottingham Guild Ringing events on a regular basis to gain experience of ringing in other towers.
Please contact Murray directly if you are interested in joining the team.
Beginners are especially welcome, as full training will be given.
