HDGB Guild Festival of Ringing and AGM  hosted by Bridgnorth District

Details can be downloaded here for this year’s Hereford Diocesan Guild of Bellringers’ Festival of Ringing and Guild AGM which is being hosted by Bridgnorth District on Saturday 14th May.  There are 2 suggested routes before lunch and one after lunch on the way to the AGM,  General Ringing is available to everyone at these towers during the stated times.  Why not make a day of it and car share so that you arrive at the towers knowing you’ll  get a ring (at your level of ringing!).  Don’t forget to book your tea in good time so that the organisers know how many to cater for!

ART M1 Teaching Bell handling Course on Saturday 28th May to be run at Leominster Priory.

Suitable for those who already teach bell handling and want to update their skills AND for those who have never taught anyone to handle a bell. Module 1 provides you with the skills and techniques necessary to take a ringer from their first lesson to having competent bell control.

You will learn through a mixture of practical and classroom sessions:
– How to teach a skill
– How to break down bell handling into easy stages that the new ringer can master
– About different learning types and how to adapt your teaching for them
– The benefits of intensive teaching
– The practical sessions will give you plenty of time to practise your new skills in a safe environment. Working in pairs you will also have an opportunity to hone your observation skills and get feedback on your feedback.

If you are interested and would like more details please let me know  by email or phone call (01531 640252 / 07515 729178).
