Ringing in Rutland

This is the website of the Rutland Branch of the Peterborough Diocesan Guild of Church Bell Ringers.

Gretton Open Tower, Saturday 23rd October.

This Saturday (23rd), Gretton has an open tower to demonstrate bellringing and hopefully prompt interest and recruit new ringers from the village.

Anyone who would like to come and ring is more than welcome to pop in between 11:00am and 1:00pm this Saturday.  There is also a coffee morning taking place which will mean there are some exceptional refreshements on offer as well as homemade soup lunches.

Preston held their Open Ringing session on Saturday 16th October 2021, to celebrate the renovation of the Bells. A good number of ringers and other Church members attended, and a fair bit of ringing was done – along with the social side of things …

Many thanks to the organisers and volunteers for a great morning!

Ringing is back!

Well, as near normal as is possible, subject to all the caveats associated with COVID and the specific circumstances in your local Tower. The CCCBR has published all the relevant information on their COVID page (click to read their blurb)

Guidelines changed on the 19th July 2021, such that it is now down to personal considerations as to when and how ringing is done. Due consideration should be made to all participants and anyone involved, whether ringing or not.

The current CCCBR guidance summary can be found here. This details recommended mitigation and explains why/when it is advisable.
