RINGERS 'TASTER DAY' St. Marys, Great Hale.
SATURDAY 10TH MAY
Over 400 people 'had a go' on the 'simulator' at Heckington Show last year and several said they would like an opportunityp to ring tower bells.
The time has come for us to give you the opportunity. The day will include viewing the bells at Helpringham from a viewing platform and ringing the bells at Heckington as well as learning more about the art of bell ringing.
Teaching for those still interested will be at St Mary's Great Hale on Monday evenings. Learning to ring is free but commitment to service ringing and othe church events is expected.
Who can learn to ring? Anyone over 12 years (approx) who can climb the belfry stairs , we would like some younger people to join us. Many of the youth organisations name bell ringing in their list of interst badges and our universities have ringing societies too - ready made friends for those leaving home for the first time.
As well as being a very social hobby ringing is mentally stimulating and a good cardiovascular exercise. An excellent hobby for people of all ages.

His help, support and friendship within the Heckington community will be greatly missed.
