About the bell ringers

Like all ringers, we arrange a few social and other events throughout the year.  After practice evening and Sunday evening ringing, we usually convene in the Druid’s Head.  There is coffee in one of the ringer’s houses after Sunday morning ringing.

We have an annual dinner: this year we made our sixth visit to Surbiton Golf Club where we enjoyed a very good evening.

Like most bands we have an annual ringing outing: last year we went on a week-end trip to Norfolk, this year we will go on a day trip to Kent.

We have an autumn barbecue, which is hosted by one of our members.

And we round off the year with a New Year’s Eve party prior to greeting the New Year with ringing.
