Tolling for Notre Dame Cathedral

Dear all, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have asked all Cathedrals and Churches across England to toll a bell at 7pm this Thursday, for 7 minutes, as a mark of solidarity following yesterday’s fire at Notre Dame Cathedral, please see link below.

Guild Spring Meeting April 27th 2019

Just a reminder that our Branch is hosting the Guild Spring Meeting and 6 bell striking competition on Saturday April 27th.

Events start with open ringing at NASSINGTON at 2pm

At 3pm competition ringing will begin in COTTERSTOCK

From 3pm onwards afternoon tea will be available in the village hall which is a short walk away from church. There is ample parking in the field next to the church and a small amount of parking at the village hall. ( Please don’t block the narrow lane leading to the church as it is used by farm vehicles)

After the competition there will be open ringing at Cotterstock.

If you would like to enter a team please contact Simon Dixon:

Competition rules can be found at:

Please book your tea ( cost £6 ) to help us with numbers for catering. To book tea please click here

Cotterstock village are doing the teas and they have a reputation for excellence so it should be well worth while coming for tea and open ringing even if you don’t want to to enter the competition! Both Nassington and Cotterstock bells have been recently refurbished and augmented and they are both lovely places to ring.

Looking forward to seeing you soon –

Sylvia
