Scottish Handbell Day. For more details, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

The next Scottish Handbell Day will be on Saturday 11th May at 1 Albany Quadrant, Glasgow. The format will be a mixture of practice sessions and quarter peals, as we have done in the past. Please feel free to pass the invitation on to anyone who you think might be interested, especially if you are doing any regular handbell ringing with people who have started recently. The only condition is that we are not planning to cater for complete beginners, so anyone who comes needs to be able to ring Plain Bob Minor already.

So, please could you do the following:
1. Tell me whether or not you are going to come.

If you are coming:
2. Tell me what you would like to ring a quarter of.
3. Tell me what you would like to practise.
4. If you think I don't already know, tell me what you can ring confidently.
5. Tell me whether you can bring a set of bells.

All of that goes for conducting too; maybe some people would like to try calling new things.
Best wishes,
Simon 

(Note: Sat 11 May, not 24 May; apologies for any confusion)

St Andrews is hosting the AGM and Striking Competition. 

Unfortunately, we will not be able to ring at Dundee in the morning but there is plenty to do in St Andrews if you would like to make a day of it! Walks in the town and on the beach, and the Himalayas putting green to name a couple of options. 

A rough outline for the day will be as follows:

  • Lunch – people to organise their own. No hall available but plenty of green space if sunny or coffee shops if not.
  • Striking competition from 1pm–4pm. General ringing until 4pm if the competition has finished. Plenty of space in the chapel for people to shelter if weather poor
  • 4pm–4:15pm short service (tbc)
  • Move to nearby hall for AGM and tea
  • General ringing 6pm–7pm

The rules for the striking competition are available from This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Please do encourage as many people as possible to take part. It is a six-bell competition and the bells at St Andrews are nice and easy to ring. Two trophies are available: One for the overall winner and one for the best performing band with limited experience. It is also possible for a scratch band to enter, so really everyone has the opportunity to ring!

Please let Ruth know if your tower is planning to enter a band for the competition (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) as soon as possible.
