Church bell ringing in Codicote.
We are trying to rebuild our team of bellringers with a view to resuming ringing for Church services.
For all enquiries about bells and bellringing at St Giles, Codicote, please contact Chris Coxell: 01438 820245.
Our practice night is (most) Mondays 7:30 – 9:00 (Please check beforehand). Visitors welcome.
Visits to the tower with explanation and demonstration can be arranged at other times for individuals or club/family groups.
Usually from about 12 upwards. It is just a question of height. But it is never too late to start.
The limiting factor at Codicote is our steep spiral staircase with 33 steps. Otherwise you need only good upper body mobility. It does not require particular strength.
In other nearby Churches ringing is from the ground floor
Bellringing does not require any particular musical or mathematical ability. A sense of rhythm, co-ordination and ability to recognise patterns is an advantage.
We are bringing back our group for Pre-School aged children (0-4 years) and their parents/carers in church, it is fortnightly on Tuesdays from 9.30-10.30am. The next date is the 25th Jan, and as always there will be toys, tea and cake!
