Reports

Bell Ringing in the News

Timetable

Tuesdays: 14:00 to 17:00 - Learners' practice (on simulator)

Fridays: 18:30 to 20:30 - Practice night. Children generally come for the first hour and adults for the second. We start on the simulator. Between 19:00 and 20:30, we may ring the bells open. We will aim to do so for part, but not necessarily the whole, of that period.

Sundays: Ringing ½h before every church service

Visiting ringers are welcome to join us.

Learning to Ring

Ringing lessons

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
