Practice News

Important update:

As Essex is subject to the restrictions imposed by the lockdown, ringing is suspended in all towers other than by members of the same household, a single bell or Ellacombe chimes (which would be unlimited in duration). Please check with your tower captain if you are unsure about when your church bells will be available to ring again. Your tower captain will inform you when it is ok to ring.

Please remember that the decision to toll a single bell rests with your incumbent. Please work with the incumbent and church wardens to ensure that ringing is properly risk assessed and precautions put in place to protect everyone.

Please check the Association website, our District Facebook page, and the regular e-mails from the district secretary for up to date information regarding when we will be able to return to ringing and other important updates as they become available.
