Current news from St John's Hand & Tower Bellringers
New year’s resolutions are now upon us and people often look to reassess their lives.
Might you be looking for something different? Yoga or tai chi? Baking? Running, or joining a garden club? Ever thought of bell ringing?There are many reasons why we’ve chosen to ring. It’s a chance to learn a new skill. It’s a link with past traditions, treading in the footsteps of all those who have worn down the stone steps up to the ringing chamber (40-odd stairs, so a calorie-burning bonus!). It’s a chance to meet people from all walks of life, some school-age, some working, some retired. I personally started ringing partly to escape the children’s maths homework and partly to dust off the little grey cells with a new venture of my own.
Whatever your reason, come and have a go!
Wednesday evening is practice night, 7.30 up at St. Johns by Hagley Hall.
You can always bow out gracefully if it’s not for you, but you may find that it gets under your skin.......!
