If you ever wish to experience the joys of bell ringing, want to find out more, or just want to socialise, you are welcome to pop in at any practice at Newtown Linford Church; Monday nights, 8-9pm.
All are welcome to enjoy the bell ringing and the church. No previous experience is necessary!
The majority of the current team began in March 2004, when an advert in the local magazine was requesting a new team of bell ringers for the village. The church bells had been silent for nearly 10 years (with the exceptions of weddings and special occasions) so it was long overdue to bring the traditional sound back into the village!
Since then, we have held weekly practice sessions to teach the skill of ringing, and many people have come along to try it. Some only have a 10 minute session with one of the experienced ringers, some stay for a few months, and some stay for years!
