Bell Ringers

Week St. Mary Church Bellringers circa 1908

The Bellringers have been busy ringing for services and weddings and have previously hosted the Tamar Valley Guild of Ringers Festival of Ringing. The event included a service in the church with Revd Rob and a Tea in the Parish Hall which boosted church and Tower Funds very nicely. We are looking forward to ringing for a total of 6 weddings so far in our church this year. The fee for providing Ringers for Weddings is £60. This includes the services of 6 Ringers for half an hour before the service, their presence and lusty singing during the service (!) and celebration ringing after the service.
Practice Night is Wednesday and for the summer, we have put back our start time to 8pm to give everyone the chance to make the best use of the summer evenings before coming out to the church. From September we will start at 7.30 again.
If ANYONE who is at least 5ft tall, fit and healthy, would like to learn to ring, please get in touch with Lesley who will arrange for a taster session for you and introduce you to the rest of the team. 
Learning to ring is a big commitment it is true, but gives you a lifelong hobby and skill and a wide circle of friends all over the district and indeed the country. A religious commitment is not necessary but once you are ‘ringable’ you may be asked to attend services at which you are available to ring. 
Please get in touch if you are interested as we are gradually getting short of new ringers to maintain this tradition in our village. Call Lesley on 01288 341221 or Email:
