Is your Ringing Chamber a “hidden place”? How regularly do non-ringers come and visit? The Heritage Open Days provide a ready-made publicity machine for us if we decide to open up our towers to the public, and an opportunity to showcase our fantastic hobby.
If you are looking for new recruits then participating in this kind of initiative can help to get you onto the map in your locality.
Last year the Basingstoke Ringers wrote about their Open Day on this site. Their article might give you some ideas as to how to create an engaging experience for your visitors:
- The Heritage Open Days site is here if you want to browse.
