Covid-19 Update - May 5th

The Central Council of Church Bellringers has put out a statement on May 5th giving their position regarding Covid-19 and ringing at this point of time. This is the statement, please read it

The Guild's Officers have issued this statement regarding Covid-19 following receipt of this document:

"We all have our own personal views on what will be safe for ourselves and those immediately around us once there is an easing of restrictions. We understand that churches in general are still off limits to the incumbent clergy. Very many of us have our own separate access to get to the ringing chamber and we would not wish to see ringers within this Diocese taking advantage of any relaxation to partake in communal ringing activities before the Church in general was back on limits for controlled congregational worship.

The general message must be that we must continue with patience and fortitude to observe the Government’s and Church’s guidance before we can get our hands back on the ropes and enjoy our ringing together.

It will be fully understandable that many ringers, particularly those who have already received specific government advice over isolation for themselves or those to whom they are physically close, will be very reluctant to return to ringing until the level of safety is seen as acceptable. There must be resistance to any undue influence being put on these people to return sooner than they are personally happy with."
