Appeal for Bellringers
South Tawton Bellringers are looking for new people to learn the wonderful art of Bellringing. We could do with about 10 or 12 new strong and healthy recruits over a period of time. It would be great to train up a youthful competition team, (15yrs+ ) to take on from us oldies, but ringing is primarily for calling people to Church for Sunday Services, Weddings, Festivals, Local events and the occasional muffled peal in rememberance of someone. Competitions are a bonus and help to keep the standard of ringing high, but not everyone wants to enter into competitive aspect and we respect this.We do need commitment, punctuality and the ability to work as a team.
Practice evenings are usually Tuesdays from 7.30pm to 9.00pm. But at present we are so few that we are sharing with Throwleigh on alternate Mondays/Tuesdays. We are challenging the youth of South Tawton parish and area to be that new team that sees the bellringing tradition carried on when we are no longer able to ring. More mature new recruits are also welcome.
Please don't let these lovely bells become a silent memory. If you are interested in finding out if this sport is for you, please contact John Cooper (Captain) on 01837 89010 or Nora Bertram on 01837 840671 and firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you, N Bertram.
