Old Brampton Bells

Youth bell ringing at Old Brampton is 'highly commended' according to the Association of Ringing Teachers (ART).

The young ringers were nominated for the Sarah Beacham Youth Group Award, for youth groups who are successfully recruiting, retaining and developing young ringers, at an awards ceremony last Saturday. Coming highly commended, they were awarded a prize of £200 to be spent on benefiting youth ringing at Old Brampton.

The young ringers take part in local and national ringing events, as well as enjoying ringing at Old Brampton and at other towers in Derbyshire.

As well as being fun, ringing provides confidence and builds teamwork and leadership skills. A flexible approach to attendance allows the young people to pursue other activities as well as ringing.

Ringers from Old Brampton who are now at university enjoy the friendship and support of their university ringing societies.

Ringing at Old Brampton will resume in due course, including lessons for any young person or adult who wishes to give it a try.
