Abbots Bromley Bellringers
We are a friendly team of volunteers who manage the ringing of the church bells at St Nicholas, Abbots Bromley, Staffordshire. We ring for church services on Sunday mornings and also for weddings and we practice weekly on a Tuesday evening. We recruit and train new bellringers and we also maintain the bells and fittings in good working order.
No ringing at present.
As a hobby, bellringing has a lot going for it, including:
Good for you - gentle exercise, or more energetic if you visit the heavier bells at Hoar Cross!
It's a great team activity and so you get to meet lots of people
Challenging and satisfying - a sense of rhythm is more important than being able to read music
We visit lots of towers in other villages and towns, both in the UK and even abroad
Get to see and help behind the scenes of the church
We ring for many reasons, such as:
For 30 minutes before most church services
For church events e.g. weddings, funerals, etc.
For village events e.g. Remembrance Day, Horn Day Dance, etc.
To progress our band e.g. practices on Tuesday nights, quarter peals, etc.
If you would like to know more about ringing, please get in touch (contact page) or meet us at the tower!
