St Martin's, Brasted

The ringers and ringing

We currently have a band of about ten ringers and it is very rare for us not to have enough people to man the bells each Sunday — although we could always do with some more recruits. Our practice night is Friday from 7.45 to 9.30pm and visitors, ringers or not, are very welcome. We have an anti-clockwise circle of eight bells. On Sunday mornings we ring from 9.15am to 10.00am, and we normally attempt a quarter peal on the third Sunday in the month before evensong. The Tower Captain is Catherine Lewis, who can be contacted on 01959 563767 or cmlewis@btinternet.com.

Most of the current members of the Brasted band are members of The Kent County Association of Change Ringers, the body which co-ordinates ringing activities in the county of Kent. The KCACR has its own website at www.kcacr.org.uk. If you would like to find out more about ringing in Kent, please try this site — it has a lot of information about all aspects of ringing.
