Tower Talk Issue 16


<<Return to news


No sooner had we published April’s Tower Talk than we knew with certainty that another one had to go out, and soon! There is so much going on at every level of ringing, some of it the ordinary day to day banter using Skype and WhatsApp, but a lot of it excitingly experimental. We have tried to cover as broad a range as we can; from technological developments right through to a St Martin’s Guild Bake-off, songs, poems and webinars, a handbell tutorial using red and blue pens and reflections of how ringing gives us a sense of identity – there is something for everyone. If you’re just discovering all this for the first time, we have developed some handy ‘How To’ visual guides. At the very least it’s a hello from your community to let you know that while ringing may have stopped, ringers haven’t and their ingenuity and sociability seems boundless. So dip in and take part, if you’re not already!
