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 parish priest, churchwardens and parishioners.

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.
