Bell Ringers

Who are we?

People who enjoy meeting together in order to ring our church bells.

The members of the ringing team come principally from within our own church family, including: Tom and Christine Langton, Lesley Hill, Richard Phipps, Richard Portwood Jnr, Anne Sladen, Richard and Denise Black.

We also have help with our practice nights and ringing for special events from other ringers within the local deanery.

Who are we for?

“Every church shall be provided with at least one bell to ring people to service.”  (Canon ‘F8’ of the Church of England)
