What is the Ladies’ Guild?
We meet together in local districts throughout the year, and nationally at an AGM Weekend in June, hosted by a different district each year.
Our object is ‘to bring together ringers both nationally and within local districts, to encourage new ringers, and to improve the standard of ringing amongst women’.
We provide a supportive network of Members who will help any other member who wishes to achieve new goals within ringing. This may be to ring a quarter or peal, to try a new method, to have an opportunity to try conducting, or to make the effort to ring or call something new. Members will organise a band and a suitable tower.
The Ladies’ Guild was formed in 1912 to bring together ringers, both nationally and within local districts and to improve the standard of ringing amongst women. [visit the ladies’ guild website]
