Ringing Awards

Learning the Ropes Achievement Awards
Five awards of £25 will be given to the best five achievers as judged from those achieving Level 5 (LtR or LtR Handbells) or participating in LtR Plus. One award of £50 will be presented to the overall winner.

Additionally, for all those who have achieved Learning the Ropes Level 5 there will be a centrally-organised weekend event: the Learning the Ropes Masterclass. This will be run on 8/9 September by a team of hand-picked, top flight ringers and will be designed to provide opportunities that are not normally available locally. Travel and accommodation will be arranged/paid for participants based in the mainland UK.

If your ringers are nearly at Level 5, can you help them complete it before 31st December? A couple of Christmas quarter peals perhaps!

Don’t miss out – apply for the 2018 ART Awards, to be presented at Royston, Hertfordshire on Saturday 3 March 2018, as part of the ART Conference.
