Bell ringing is an exercise for body and mind that can be enjoyed by anyone from the age of about 12 years upwards, providing you can climb the 29 stairs, stand and raise your arms above your head with reasonable coordination.
If you would like to give bell ringing a try, then call Tower Captain George Nix on 0161 748 5867.
Visiting ringers are always welcome at practice or service ringing
Standard methods when possible, otherwise call changes.
