Looking to join the TDGR…? Welcome.
The TDGR is a Charity that anyone is welcome to join, whatever your ability. If you are a full time student or under 18 membership is free and for the rest of us, including non ringers, membership is currently just £5 per year. To become a member all you need to do is be proposed at a Guild or District event. You and your proposer are not obliged to attend although it is always nice to welcome our new members in person. In the first instance please contact myself or your relevant District Secretary so we can let you know of the first opportunity AND if we know in advance we can usually get a new member certificate for presentation at your election.
If you have been elected in the last 12 months and not received a certificated and would like one please get in touch membership@TDGR.org.uk
I took over as membership secretary in 2023 having already carried out a number of roles on the TDGR Standing committee. I was taught to ring by my parents in Kent at the tender age of 9 becoming a member of the brand new band at Sandwich. I also rang at Canterbury Cathedral, Quex Park and Chilham. I went to University in Newcastle Upon Tyne and spent 8 years in the North East where I was an active member of the University Society and was Master for three years. Following this I then moved to Nottingham becoming Tower Captain at West Bridgford and in 2012 I moved to Cornwall. I’m currently teaching our 6 year old son to ring as well as being a bit of a beginner steeple keeper at Kenwyn and Ladock. I enjoy ringing at new towers, 12-bell ringing and dabbling in compositions and method theory.
