BELL RINGERS

The year 2015-16 has gone very well for the bellringers with all the learners becoming members of the KCACR (Kent County Association of Change Ringers).  We are practising Plain Hunt Triples and some are trying their hand at Bob Doubles with great success.  We are such a good, friendly team that the system of having two bands so that each rings every other Sunday is working well, with members ready to swap if necessary.  For the Queen's 90th birthday we decided not to run the usual practice, but concentrated on ringing methods and call changes for the evening, so that everyone could be involved.  Long may Her Majesty's reign and our enthusiasm continue!

BELL RINGERS

Since the last update in December 2014, we are pleased to say that all the newcomers are ringing on Sundays and hence we are able to form two bands ringing on alternate weeks, making it easier for us to accommodate family and other social commitments.  They have all passed their 'test' and are being put forward on 13 June 2015 as Members of the KCACR (Kent County Association of Change Ringers - well you did ask!).  Plain Hunt is the first method they are learning and it is sounding very good - I had better watch out, they will soon be overtaking me! 

 Why not learn to ring?

Ringers come from all walks of life and in range from ten to those in their eighties!

You will find that not only is it good mental and physical exercise

but you will find opportunities

to meet a global group of friends

maintain a traditional skill

be of service to the church

visit amazing places

provide joy at church weddings
