We currently have over 300 members, from 55 Society Towers. Ringing members pay £5.00 per year and juniors (under 19s) pay £2.00 per year. Of these subscriptions, £1.00 is automatically transferred to the Bell Restoration Fund – a fund supporting the care and maintenance of bells in Society towers.

New Members

The minimum qualification for Ringing membership of the Society is to be able to handle a bell safely and ring call changes competently. If you’re learning these skills and haven’t reached this standard yet, you are still welcome to attend Society events as a guest.

Why join?

The Society offers you the opportunity to further your ringing, to ring and socialise with other members and to take part in our events - take a look at our calendar to see what’s happening this month. By subscribing, you are also supporting the work of the Bell Restoration Fund, which provides grants to Society towers needing work; you also receive a welcome pack and a free copy of the Annual Report.

Steepleage

When ringing at other towers it is customary to leave a donation to cover some of the costs of your visit. When the Society visits a tower as part of one of its calendar of events, the Secretary leaves a donation on behalf of all the visitors. This is paid for by the Society and is included within the subscription.
