Bell Ringing

The Upper Wylye valley has some wonderful bells and they are always looking for people to join their friendly band of ringers.

They tend to practise on a Wednesday for an hour from 6 pm, usually 1st Wed - Heytesbury, 2nd - Sutton Veny 3rd - Codford St Peter and 4th - Longbridge Deverill

If there is a 5th Wed we may ring at Boyton, but only from Spring to Autumn. But these days are not set in stone and frequently change to fit around a PCC meeting or some other event in the church. Additionally, practices tend to be run by either Andrew Howes from Wylye or myself Nick Claypoole, and if neither of us are available we usually cancel.

Visitors tend to check whether there is ringing with the tower correspondents.

Each tower has a point of contact - known as the tower correspondent - as follows:

St Peter, Codford - Nick Claypoole 850724

Blessed Mary of Boyton - Nick Claypoole 850724

St Peter and Paul, Heytesbury - Joe Charlesworth 840184

St John, Sutton Veny -Annabel Elliott 841267

All Saints, Norton Bavant - As nominated by PCC - I understand that the DAC Inspector of Bells is due to look at NB's bells shortly.

St Peter and Paul, Longbridge Deverill - Richard Munro.

Even the Rector has had a go!!!!
