Try Your Hand At Ringing - 7 August 2011

The Bell Ringers will be at Flitwick’s main community event – the Classic Car and Bike Show (including The Health and Beauty Experience) at the Rufus Centre in Flitwick on Sunday 7 August from 12 noon to 4pm.  We are pleased to be hosting the Charmborough Ring - a portable belfry with six bells that can be rung in the same way as those in churches and cathedrals throughout the country.


If you have never rung a bell, we would be delighted to "show you the ropes" and let you try your hand at ringing, or if you are already an accomplished ringer you are very welcome to come along and have a go on what is considered to be one of, if not, the best mini-ring in the country.

If that is not enough to tempt you, the Bell Ringers will also have their stall selling a range of home-made sweets, which proved very popular at this year's summer fete.

There won’t be any charge to ring (although any donations towards our refurbishment project will be gratefully received!).  There is an entry fee to the Classic Car show which is £3 for adults (children free).  Directions and a map to the Rufus Centre in Flitwick can be found on their web site at http://www.therufuscentre.co.uk/.

We look forward to seeing you there!
