Doncaster & District Society of Change Ringers

The Doncaster and District Society of Change Ringers was established in 1921. Our society members ring at church towers within a 15 mile radius of Doncaster. We hold our monthly meetings (except December and January) on the last Saturday of the month.

Our Annual General Meeting is held on the last Saturday of January.

The aim of our society is threefold: to further church service ringing; to encourage and cultivate the scientific art of change ringing; to promote good fellowship amongst ringers.

Our programme for the year is published on the website and each month our meetings are advertised in the Ringing World. Visitors are always welcome to attend our meetings.

There is a shortage of bell ringers in the Doncaster area. Are you interested in learning how to ring a church bell and take up a very rewarding and interesting hobby? Free training is provided. Send a message via the Contact form.

Society president: Mrs Helen Nichols
Society secretary: Mrs Marian Thomas
