Bellringing Open Day
St Mary’s Church, Lytchett Matravers
Saturday 9th July 11am – 3pm
Do you hear the church bells ringing sometimes and wonder how it works or think you might like to have a go? We practice once a week but we are having an Open Day so you can come down and listen to the bells being rung, have a go yourself on a simulator, have a go on the church bells with someone to help you and talk to our bellringers to find out how they became hooked.
This is a great opportunity to:
Ring on a simulator, Ring on the real bells, talk to our bellringers, see some factual DVD’s, Listen and watch the ringers
A global group of friends, lifelong learning experience, maintain a traditional skill, a service to the church, team activity, a great mental workout, opportunity to visit amazing places
Who can ring?
Ringers come from all walks of life and range in age from 10 to those in their eighties. “When I’m ringing I forget all the tensions and frustrations of the day. Even better, you couldn’t wish for a nicer group of friends.”
