The Ringers

Here at Saint Mary's we have a regular Sunday - service band consisting of six to eight people. Here are most of them (if you can bear to look)! This is a fairly recent photograph and was taken after a tiring practice! John doesn't always look like Quasimodo! As well as those shown here, we also have a faithful local band who come to practice on a Thursday night from the surrounding towers. Without these people, our practice nights would consist of mainly six-bell ringing.

Our ringing skills range from people who can ring call changes, through to those managing Plain Hunt, Plain Bob, Grandsire, Treble Bob and Stedman.
