The Stretham Ringing Education Centre

Now an ART Hub and a Central Council recognised Ringing Centre.

Providing all ringers with the opportunity to develop their ringing performance skills

St James, Stretham.

The Stretham REC is at St James’ Church, Stretham, Ely, CB6 3LD. 

Church website.

Learning to ring starts with 1-1 tuition and builds skills using a constantly updated teaching program designed to give you a great learning experience. The Stretham REC provides individual bell handling sessions on a Saturday morning to get you started. 

You will learn rope handling, listening skills, observing skills and even a bit of our special ringers secret language, so being a quick learner does help. You do not need to be a church-goer, do not need to be competitive, you just need to want to learn.
