Explore together a wide range of ringing activities, and at the same time benefit your ringing. What's not to like? So why not form a team and have some fun together?
The Ringing Things are divided into 3 categories:
There are two ways to collect your Ringing Things. You can either buy the 50 Ringing Things for Teams book (available at the ART Shop) or pay to register for the online progress tracker at 50things-team.bellringing.org. Registration for those who've bought the book is free. Registration allows you to apply for your team certificates and you'll also find tips and guidelines on how to complete the challenges.
Bronze, Silver and Gold certificates will be awarded for completing 15, 30 or 50 Ringing Things respectively. If you complete 50 Ringing Things within 100 weeks of registration you will be eligible to be awarded a Gold Plus certificate. Your final activity should be your team celebration which you can to sign off at the back of your book.
The names of certificate awardees will be published on the Hall of Fame, in ART newsletters and other media. Do share what you are doing as you progress through the scheme with other participants and ART Members. You can use the 50 Ringing Things Facebook group for write-ups and photographs. Your 50 Ringing Things for Teams book could be used as part of a submission for an ART Award.
If you are a new ringer, particularly if you are under 18, you should discuss with your Tower Captain about having a mentor who can offer guidance and practical help.
