Stretham Ringing Education Centre - Announcement of opening

This centre, set up and overseen by the EDA, is now open. Do you feel you could ring so much better if only you had a little more time to practise? Then the REC may be able to meet your needs. Anyone can practise here for as long as they like, using the latest simulator technology, with the help of our experienced and/or qualified instructors.

We are at St James’ church, Stretham

We have a ring of 6 (9-2-21) and a simulator, allowing you to practise on any number of bells. There is a meeting room where students can practise methods on the computer using Abel or view instructional DVDs.

The REC is available at any time of the day or evening - other than when the building is in use by the church or by the local band.

The REC is available for use in a great variety of ways:
  • You can book an individual or group lesson with one of the REC’s approved teachers (many of whom are ITTS-qualified). This can cover any aspect of your learning to ring.
  • Advanced ringers may book the REC for individual or group practice without a teacher being required.
  • If you wish to bring your own learners and use the facilities of the REC to teach them, you are very welcome.
  • Tower captains can bring their whole bands for extra practice or a focus session.
  • Courses will be run at the REC - if you have a requirement for a particular course, please ask.
There is a small charge of £2 per ringer per session, to cover expenses, donations etc.

Please read our safeguarding policy here

The REC is run by the Stretham REC committee. You can read our management rules here and see our agendas and minutes here
