Learning to Ring
Contact: Barbara Le Gallez (as above) to arrange a trial lesson without obligation. Or drop in to the church when we are ringing. Or pick up one of our information leaflets from the back of the church.
Lessons are available for adults and children over 8 and cost 50p per session. We teach you at a time to suit you. Or you can join one of our group practices, listed above under Timetable.
Once you have reached a reasonable standard, you will be encouraged to join us in ringing the bells of All Saints' church prior to services.

A Poem about Bell Ringing
Found in the ringing room at St Mary's, Greaseley, Notts, author unknown:
First, may your ringing give you joy
And those outside may not annoy.
So mind you strike your very best
Then leave the bells do all the rest.
When standing in to ring a touch,
The method matters not so much
As mind and eyes and ears and hands.
With these are made the best of bands.
Thoughts on Ringing by Ringers
We asked some of our ringing friends why they enjoy bell ringing. Here are their answers:
It's a team activity that unites the generations. DC
It's better fun than watching television. CS
Not only is it a community based activity but also it’s a physical and mental skill. JW
It's challenging like chess or golf, but is cooperative rather than competitive. GC
It's a very English activity that you don't find in many other places. JBC
When ringing, I can't think about ANYTHING else; all other worries and troubles are forcibly expelled from my mind; it's the most wonderful release! FW
