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

We are in the midst of the secondary holiday season that begins when the schools go back. This generally involves anyone without school-age children. Currently six of the band are away on holiday [three couples] and one travelling for work. Knowing that this week’s practice would be short of people but being reluctant to cancel we set up the simulator instead. In the end we had five ringers, which wasn’t bad in the circumstances, and rang various things from rounds through to Bob Minor, all using the simulator. Our youngest ringer is getting the hang of call changes and this is a good way of moving him around in the knowledge that the virtual band are all totally accurate.
Last Sunday’s service ring was also looking a bit doubtful at one point but with the help of three of our Dereham friends all was well and the ringing was good. This Sunday’s congregation will be serenaded with the Ellacombe chimes and the following week there is no ringing at Scarning as there is a single service for the whole benefice at Dereham. And by that time we will be emerging into October and our wanderers will have returned from their travels.
