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.

The Ellacombe apparatus had its first serious use at last Sunday’s communion service, one where we wouldn’t normally provide a band. It provoked favourable comment from the congregation and left the tower captain with the vague worry that people might find they prefer it to normal ringing, which wouldn’t do at all!
A regular visitor commented on Wednesday how difficult it had become to pull off the 5th bell, making us suspect that its banana-shaped stay is a recent development. We still cannot see any weakness or cracking in the stay but may have to either replace it or fit a block in the slider runner as the bell is now rather too deep-set for comfort.
Wednesday’s practice was one of those when everything seems to be just right. Not too many or too few there, and enough skills to let everyone have a go at what they wanted to do. If only it were always like that!
