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
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.
Ringing is a discovery journey and can be very sociable.
Ringing does not require strength or musical aptitude, although the latter may help as you progress.
Ringing is not loud or dangerous.
Ringing is not as simple as it looks.
Ringing is a lifetime skill, you cannot lose it.
Ringers are a worldwide community. Once you can ring, thousands of towers around the UK and the globe will welcome you in.
Ringing will take you to unusual places that most people never get to go or see.
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.
