If you have registered as a New ringer, or as a Returning Ringer and didn’t tell us where you are ringing at, we send your details to someone in one of the affiliated ringing societies. It does take a little while for the information to filter through; if you haven’t heard within 3 weeks of registering, though, please email us and let us know.
If you are really keen to find somewhere to ring at, here’s a quick guide how:
- Go to our Dove database. This lists all towers worldwide which have ringing peals of bells.
- Within the United Kingdom (unless it is a BT, IM or ZE postcode), choose the Postcode Search option. Otherwise enter into the search a town near you. Not all towns have rings of bells; in countries other than England and Wales, where the towers are few and far between, you may want to click on more options and guidance... This allows you to search by county or country.
- From the list start to look at suitable towers (or you can use the map). Not all towers ring regularly – try to find one with a practice night listed. Click on that tower.
- This will take you to a detail page. There may be a web page listed for the tower – clicking on it should give you sufficient information to find the contact for the tower.
- If there isn’t a web page shown, click on the listed affiliation. This will take you to the CCCBR affiliated ringing societies page. Scroll down the list until you see the affiliated society, and click on it – this should take you to that society’s web page.
- Most (but not all) societies will give a list of their towers, with links to contact details. Or at least a central person you can contact.
- If you do manage to find somewhere to ring and make contact, please don’t forget to update your profile (especially your status) with the details!
