Bellringing is a team activity that stimulates the brain, helps keep you fit and it also makes a glorious sound.
Do you have to be mathematical, musical, church going or strong? No, none of them although some are.
More than 40,000 ringers in Britain alone come from all walks of life and range in age from about 9 to over 90.
"When I'm ringing I forget all the tensions and frustrations of the day.
Even better, I couldn't wish for a better group of friends!"
Could I become a ringer?
Bellringing is well within the capabilities of most people. The initial learning takes several weeks, after which you can begin to ring with the rest of the band. Most ringers usually practise weekly and ring on Sundays.
"Being able to count is all the maths you'll need and you can become a very good ringer without knowing anything about music."
"if you can ride a bicycle you can ring!"
Not all church towers contain bells. Eastbourne has five towers with bells that are hung for ringing and neighbouring towns and villages have more.
They will all make you welcome. Where do I go to in Eastbourne and when?
Beware! once you have the bug, you'll find it hard to give up and there is always something new to learn:
"I learnt to ring over forty years ago and I still get the same buzz that I did when I first started."
