As a IMG_0986pupil who only started ringing this year, I have been lucky enough to join a bell ringing teaching school , that I find is not only first class in its theory but excellent in its hands on practical bell ringing techniques. The ease of knowledge that is passed on individually while actually pulling the ropes, is a triumph of advancement. so much information is absorbed in the short 2 hour lesson you leave with your head spinning, its great. All the trainers are helpful, sincere and full of enthusiasm, I couldn’t have wanted to learn Campanology at a better time, these courses will help me to become a competent ringer in far, far lest time that probably most of the current ringers and I thank the school for all their help, efforts and the time that all trainers and helpers alike give up  to help us the pupils learn this wonderful ‘hobby’. Who knows one day I will be able to repay the debt by being a tower helper myself
Many thanks to all involved
