First Edition of Tower Talk

Learning the Ropes is a structured, progressive scheme to learn the art of bell ringing which was launched in May 2012. So if you’re reading this as a new ringer on the scheme, you’re part of a huge family of almost 2,000 new ringers! The Association of Ringing Teachers works hard to support new teachers, but this newsletter is for you – new ringers – to feel part of this amazing community which stretches right around the world.

We would love to hear all about your experiences, share your successes and keep you informed of news, tips and opportunities. We’d also like to hear what you think of the newsletter and if there are other things you’d like to see in it.
