Bell ringers

Our Band, 'Ash-by-Wrotham Change Ringers', consists of people aged between 11 and 60+, including several returning ringers, and we have a wide range of abilities and experience.

We hold practice sessions on Saturday mornings between 9am and 11am. These are very informal drop-in style sessions and anybody is welcome to come along and have a go.
As we have a ground floor ring, it's very easy to find the way into the ringing chamber, so there's no excuse that you could not find us! Come along and have a go!

We always need ringers to keep this very old tradition alive!
We try to maintain links with all other bands in the area. This means you could move from our 6 bells to 8 bells or even 12 bells, ringing heavier bells and attempting more complex methods as you progress or you'll be welcome to stick to simple change ringing with us, it's up to you.

We also have a group called the 'Silver Ringers' who meet on Tuesdays at 10:30am, ring for about an hour and half then adjourn to the pub for lunch. The main emphasis is on the fun of ringing. As the name implies, the group is orientated to the more mature person although anybody available at that time is welcome to come along.

If you would like any more information on any aspect of our bell ringing, please contact Ian Paddy on 01474 873314.
