In these difficult times nomination for an ART Award can be just what is needed to keep someone keen and motivated. It’s one of many ways we can say “thank you” to people who are making a difference. We are keen to stress that the teaching and group awards are not only open to individuals, but also to towers and ringing societies, including Guilds and Associations.

Welcome to 50 Virtual Ringing Things

The place to explore the world of virtual ringing and the many different activities that hook fellow bell ringers into this additive hobby. The challenges cover simulator software, online ringing, handbells and the enigmatically named tail ends (things that don't fit into the other categories). And when you’ve ticked off a challenge yourself you can share your experience on the 50 Things Facebook group.

The scheme is targeted at those who are new to ringing in the virtual world however I am sure that just like the original 50 Ringing Things there will be competitions between experienced virtual ringers to see who will be the first to get their Gold certificate.
