Leatherhead District

Calendar Notes

District Practice – Everything from Rounds & Call Changes through to whatever we can sensibly manage. Typically well attended with plenty of ‘stand-behinders’. A chance to experience/hear some better ringing and meet up with members from across the District. The ‘traditional’ District Practice.

Relaxed Ringing & Lunch – These Monday/Friday morning sessions are similar to the above but have a different ‘feel’. We don’t go because we feel we ought to be there, we go because we want to enjoy our ringing together and the social get-together in the pub afterwards! Typically held at a tower just outside the District. A ‘one-tower mini-outing’ if you prefer.

Focus on 6 – These practices will aim to provide opportunities for six‐bell ringers that might not always be possible at their home tower. Intended for those who can generally manage plain hunt or above, we will aim to develop confidence in especially in five‐bell methods, ranging from exercises to improve rhythm, through to calling touches.

Stedman & Beyond – These practices are designed to stretch the more capable ringers in the District. We’ll aim for the standard 8, one-at-a-time & spliced, and perhaps beyond. We’ll also ring Double Norwich and perhaps Shipway & spliced Triples. If you are unsure if these practices are for you then please check with the District Master.

10-bell Method Practice – We have a couple of these in the programme. These will be focused on improving our individual and collective ability to ring methods on 9 & 10 bells. Probably mostly Plain Bob, Grandsire, Stedman, Little Bob, Kent, and hopefully Cambridge & Yorkshire.
