Like many towers and bell 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.
And like most bands we have an annual outing which involves either a weekend trip or a day trip to towers around the country.
We also have an annual barbecue 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.

We also take our part in Surrey Association activities, including the annual Easter quiz and the striking competitions.
