New logins for members

As you know, we have all had the same login username and password in the past but we are changing over the next few weeks so that each member has their own login.

An explanation of the reasons why and how to get your new login details are available here.

(You will need to login in the old way to reach the application page)


Some members are finding it tricky to set a new password. Here is a pdf file to hopefully help you through the process.



Ring out to draw attention to Climate Change


Post COP26 Glasgow


Following the ringing on the Eve of the Climate Change conference in Glasgow, Jane was interviewed on Radio Cornwall, again raising the presence of Bell Ringing in the community.

For anyone who has come to the website to find out more – you can hear the bells of your own tower by typing the first few letters into the search box above, click on your church name in the options, scroll down and play the audio file. You can contact the local Tower Captain or Secretary by filling in the contact form, or go to the Learn to ring page if you wish to be put in touch with a Ringing teacher near you.


It may be that we are asked to ring again regarding Climate Change over the next few years so the various ringing suggestions will still be available. As always it is a good idea to check with your incumbent before ringing.

Hopefully we won’t be needing this anytime soon, but here is an Operation London Bridge update 


For those not familiar with operation London Bridge, these are the Ringing Guidelines on the death of a Monarch.


The key is that towers to liaise with church authorities so everyone is clear about expectations – saves any confusion!
