St Nicholas Church in Codsall are installing a training bell.  St Nicholas' has 8 bells and the addition of a training bell is needed to help teach beginners as well as enabling existing ringers to develop their skills.  The training bell is silent but mimics everything a normal one does.

We have secured just over half of the £7,000 for the installation needed, but are hoping you will support us for the remaining balance.

Campanology has been going in it’s present form in England for over 400 years and it’s vital we continue the noble tradition.  We will be looking to recruit and offer training to new ringers once the training bell has been installed.  We intend that it will also be available for other bands to use.

Existing ringers are always welcome to join us on Wednesday night practice and/or Sunday service ringing.

We shall be dedicating the training bell to Helen Marsh, who was one of our band.  Helen had a real passion to teach others how to ring and sadly passed away aged 65.

Thank you for your support.
