We have a mixture of different types of ringing meetings. Some are morning ringing practices from 10.30 -12.30 consisting of ringing only with no meeting or service, followed by a pub lunch for those who wish to have refreshments. All of the quarterly meetings, including the ADM, are morning ringing sessions 10.30-12.30 followed by refreshments provided by the hosting tower, and finishing with the business meeting.
In June the meeting will be an all-day outing. During the year there will be a call change competition and in December there will be the traditional Carol Service and ringing.
In addition to the District meetings, each month there will be either a learners practice or a more advanced practice.
It is hoped that this will provide a variety of ringing events which will enable and encourage ringers to participate as often as possible.
Ringers of all standards (from rounds to Spliced Surprise) are very welcome and will happily be catered for. If you are trying to learn a new method then this is an ideal opportunity to ring with an experienced band and to have someone “hovering behind” to guide you through if necessary. Please let the Ringing Master know what you would like to ring and they will try to arrange something to suit you.
