The East Grinstead and District Guild of Church Bell Ringers was formed in 1927, and includes towers situated within a radius of 16 miles (25 km) of East Grinstead.
There are 92 towers with 3 or more bells within this area. All the towers fall within one of the following associations:
Members of the Guild generally meet for ringing on the second Saturday of each month (with the exception of May, when there is no meeting). The July meeting usually takes the form of an outing. The Annual General Meeting is held in March, and there are also three quarterly business meetings each year. These business meetings usually incorporate a church service and tea, as well as ringing. The remainder of the meetings usually take place in the evening and last about two hours. Click here to see a list of upcoming events.
All ringers of all abilities are welcome to join us at our meetings (but please note that we do not teach bell handling).
