Church bells are an important part of our community in Great Gransden, being rung for church services, village events and national occasions. Visiting ringers are welcomed. We are strongly supported by our priest the Revd Catharine Furlong and parishoners.

Ringing is intellectually challenging, sporty, healthy exercise, sociable and noisy. In short - GREAT FUN!

Our ringers are involved in many other village activities and come from all walks of life. We particularly welcome youngsters to join our team and we enjoy very busy and fun-filled practice nights.

The tower is equipped with cctv and a ringing simulator used during training, which is given by accredited teachers. Training is continuous and takes place during weekly practices and at frequent 1:1 training sessions. Nationally developed training programmes are followed.

Church bell ringing is a fascinating and exciting activity and we welcome all new ringers and those who have learnt to ring elsewhere.

News (important notice) 7th March 2018

I have decided, rather than have a Blog and a News page I will report everything on the Blog page. It is sometimes difficult to know what is Blog and what is News, its really all the same. So, from today the News page has been deleted. Archives of previous years' News and Blogs are available on the website by clicking on the archive page.
