On Tuesday 17th October, we were delighted to welcome a visiting group from Vernet-Les-Bains, the only town in France with bells rung full circle like English bells. Supported on their tour by several English ringing friends, we ended up with over 20 ringers. The first hour was for individuals having a go with the simulator. Then the clapper ties were taken off and the bells rung 'open', audible outside, for the second hour. Coffee was served and old friendships renewed.

Numbers are picking up for the public demonstrations and 'have-a-go' sessions every weekday afternoon. Recently we had this great group of five ladies having a session combining a demonstration and a go!

We are now open to the public every weekday from 2pm till 4pm. You can book to attend the half-hour demonstration at 2.15 or the 'have a go' at 2.45, or simply turn up and pay on the day if there's room. And if time is short, you're welcome to pop up for a quick look at the bellringing set-up, and someone will explain what's going on. All welcome!

We are pleased to unveil the official logo for The Bells of St Clement's Cambridge.

It's all there: the movement of a swinging bell on a bell wheel, the oranges and lemons of the traditional nursery rhyme, the anchor which is the symbol of St Clement (and used by this church), and of course the words to say who we are. Look out for it popping up all over the place!

Thriplow and Foxton ringers have recently started regular group sessions with us. Today, Becca introduced a biscuit tin below the rope, to encourage pulling all the way through!
