Mid-Devon - Welcome Back to Ringing - 4 Sep 21


Church bells are now back ringing and the Mid Devon Branch of The Guild of Devonshire Ringers is holding a celebration meeting. Stokeinteignhead Church is the venue on Saturday afternoon 4th September from 2.30 to 5.00. Before lockdown the branch met about twice a month. During lockdown various on-line activities kept the ringers in touch with each other but this will be the first time since then that they will meet "in person".

The afternoon is planned to be a relaxed and informal meeting with some ringing on the fine ring of six bells but also refreshments, handbells and just a chance to socialise after the long break. Branch Ringing Master, Martin Mansley said "We are particularly keen to meet any bellringers who have recently moved to the area or who used to ring but have not been involved for some time. If this is you, please come along and meet us. Refresher courses and workshops are available. If you are not a bellringer, this would also be a good opportunity to learn more about this very English Art".
