The group will rehearse each Wednesday from 5.30pm to 6.30pm in the church hall at St Andrew’s and is beginning in April 2015.

There is a deep tradition of bell-ringing in the Penistone area, but the bells have been a little silent in recent years. The group hopes to change that.

Bell-ringing is a simple and enjoyable way for children to develop musical skills, read music and, of course, to meet new friends.

Children will also gain confidence from performing at key festivals and for local community groups.

Places are limited to between 8 and 16 for children over the age of 6.

Parents are invited to put the names of their children down for the group by contacting the group leader: Samantha Phillips on 07825 567 545, or by email on [email protected]
