This year we are challenging individuals to spend 70 days training to become a church bell ringer to mark the 70-year reign of Queen Elizabeth II. We really hope that all those involved enjoy the experience and that many of the learners continue after the 70-day period to develop their ringing skills.
Please provide us with some details so that we can arrange your enrolment in the scheme. You will be invited to an initial meeting as close to your home location as possible to register for your tuition. On registration you will be asked to pay a joining fee of £20 and be given a welcome pack. The fee will cover all your tuition and after a successful 70-day training period you will receive your own polo shirt embroidered with the PDGCBR Guild logo and “Jubilee Ringer”. It is hoped that by this point you will be able to join a band at a tower local to you where you will continue to receive instruction.
If you would like more information about bells and bellringing there are many useful sources including the Central Council of Church Bell Ringers website, Bellringing website and our own bell ringing page.
