Welcome to the homepage of the bell ringers of Ss. Peter & Paul, Scarning.

On this site you should find everything you need to know about who we are, what we do and when.

Friday 12th February 2021

With the country still in strict lockdown, there has been no ringing at Scarning for some while, and there is no immediate prospect of a resumption. We would probably have got away with ringing using the Ellacombe system during this period, as it involves a single person, but ‘getting away with’ things is not in the spirit of what we are being asked to do, and with no services to ring for we decided to leave it for the moment.

There are, of course, hopeful signs, as the vaccination programme is progressing more or less on schedule. There are also early indications from elsewhere that a combination of increasing numbers vaccinated, immunity amongst those who have already had covid-19 and the arrival of warmer weather will bring us to a point where the level of new infections should begin to drop rapidly.

The other side of the coin is that we have warning noises coming from government that social distancing may remain in place until the autumn which, if that includes ringing, would be a serious blow. But these are matters beyond our control, and all we can do is react to changing circumstances as they arise.

I’ll post again here as soon as there is anything to report, and let us hope that it won’t be too long.
