This is possibly the most unusual Towertalk ever – as usual, it’s full of inspiring and interesting stories from our amazing community of new ringers, but there’s no ringing going on out there! As most of these articles had been written before the full impact of the Coronavirus pandemic had hit every aspect of our lives, I felt we should go back to the authors and invite them to update what they had written in the light of recent events.

There is a lot of sadness and frustration that people can’t get on with what they love to do, but there are also many people trying very hard to come up with ideas to keep ourselves interested and motivated, to keep learning and to support each other as friends and band members. There are many opportunities to stay in touch with each other and with the worldwide community of ringing, so make the most of what’s out there.

This is the 15th edition of Towertalk, so if you’re really stuck, there are 14 back copies you can catch up on!
