Essendon Bell Ringers
Essendon has a small, friendly band of ringers. Our ages and abilities as ringers vary quite a bit. Here are some of us:
We generally ring all eight bells, usually to call changes, for the Sunday services and weddings, and we ring the old year out and the new year in on New Year's Eve.
We practice on Tuesday nights from 8.00 to 9.30. As we do not have many expert ringers this consists of call changes and simple methods, unless there are visitors, in which case we can ring up to Cambridge Major. After practice, there is always a social visit to the pub. If you would like to join us as a ringer, whatever your ability, or would just like to find out more about ringing, please do pay us a visit. You will be very welcome.

Each year we have a summer barbecue for the ringers and their families and ringing friends.
