Current Ringing Status

As of 6th February 2021, all Lancashire Association territory, along with the rest of the UK, is in lockdown, which means stay at home; no ringing of tower or handbells.

(Restricted) ringing could start on Monday 17th May (government "stage 3"); this date may change.

Ringing may be possible under less restricted conditions by the end of June 2021 (the government's "Stage 4" but this is subject to review and the vagaries of COVID

The Central Council have issued a roadmap to ringing resumption (see "Latest News" article).
