With the re-hanging of the bells in the church, bell ringing is now possible again....
Under the tuition of Catrin and Ian Russ from the Aston bell ringing group, a small group of enthusiastic campanologists is emerging, drawn from within Broadwell and other villages within the Benefice.
Practise takes place on a Thursday evening, from 5-6pm. We avoid ringing too much later to allow the neighbours to get their children to bed in peace!
Newcomers are very welcome. No experience required. Please contact Phil Taylor on 07798660198 or email@example.com for further details
