The bell-ringers of St Bartholomew’s Church practise each week on Thursdays (7.30pm to 9.00pm). Bell-ringing is a way to meet people from every walk of life and is suitable for anyone from ten to ninety years old.
One does not have to be musical, though a sense of rhythm is helpful. As far as is known, we, in Leigh, are the only bell-ringers in the world who ring from a tiered gallery, standing on the pews.
Click through to their website above or alternatively see the Leigh Post or the notice in the Church.
Young bell-ringers are always welcome, those aged 10 or more tend to learn quickly.
Usually the young bell-ringers begin by coming on Thursdays, 7-8pm. It is a sign of progress when they are able to join in Sunday ringing and then for weddings. Several young ringers have learnt bell-ringing as part of their Duke of Edinburgh Award.
If you are interested or just curious drop in on a Thursday evening.
