West Tanfield welcomes Le Tour

West Tanfield has a most beautiful church and a very enthusiastic band who are at the heart of village preparations for Le Tour.

I met the band last August on a day scouting The Dales.  We had a great time ringing and an equally fine pint next door.  The village was already well into Tour plans a year ago.  Check out their website below to see the huge range of events planned for the coming weekend.  Bellringing will be one of many activities.  Nice Post Office too 🙂

The Wombel of WimBellDon

Enjoying Wimbledon but fancy a bit of bellringing to spice it up?

You need the Leeds Waterfront Festival this weekend 28 / 29 June.

The “Wombel” training bell will be there all weekend for the public to come and have a go.

It has been used recently at Dewsbury Minster Fest and at the media launch of the Yorkshire Festival Programme back in January.  It went down a storm both times.

Tell your non ringing friends to get down to Thwaites Mill and have a go.

Wim Bell done.
