Our towers and teachers have been magnificent in pulling out all the stops to accommodate the new ringers quickly. Thank you!
The bare bones then – 18 new ringers placed in 10 towers and the majority are underway with, and enjoying, their lessons. 4 are pending final confirmation with towers and 6 are in the early stages of contact as yet.
Good feedback from new ringers regarding the publicity generally. One specific comment from the Romsey area
“It was a good sell – not in the marketing sense”.
Ringing Remembers has provided a significant focus, it seems…..another comment has been “I’ve always wanted to try bell ringing!”
A new ringer after Lesson One – ” We really enjoyed it – we have a great instructor and he made the session fun. It’s obvious now that it’s more than just pulling on a rope 🙂 but I’m sure we’ll pick it up given time”.
The way we respond to enquiries AND FOLLOW UP is vital…”Thanks for such a speedy response!” Folk who are keen enough to contact us are excited, of course, and want to get on with their Taster Session!
