“Let your fingers do the ringing”

Ringing Returns. Come on you reluctant ringers. So many people tell me “I have always wanted to have a go at ringing church bells”. Now is your chance!

Learning to ring is just plain good fun. Like anything that makes a rhythm or tune there is the theory & the practice. Mastering handling the bell which could be 10 times your weight is challenging, that’s the practice. We tend to concentrate on that & good teachers let new-comers have fun while they learn to safely handle the bell. Then understanding what makes ringing such an enduring passion for a lot of people comes next. The Theory. Being part of a team making that beautiful sound that’s the aim. The second most recognised sound in the countryside after bird song. It’s coming the together in a team to make that quintessentially English sound of change ringing on church bells. Over 5,500 towers in England alone.

By spring/summer it is hoped we’ll be back to our normal practice night at St. John’s adjacent Hagley Hall in top Hagley past the Lyttelton Arms.So join us now & let your fingers do the ringing on your computer. It is so simple, Erica a recruit from December is already joining in. By the time we get to give tutorials on rope handling she will understand the jargon behind the theory.

So like Erica, pick up the phone or email me & “Let your fingers do the ringing”
