Our constitution

In 2022, we amended our Constitution to be more inclusive and welcoming. Our purpose is now:

Carlisle Diocesan Guild of Church Bell Ringers (CDGCBR) works in partnership with local ringers, bands and towers, and with the Church in the Diocese as it serves and worships God, to:

  1. Support ringing for Church services, and national and community events
  2. Promote the enjoyment of ringing and fellowship amongst ringers of all faiths and none
  3. Welcome, recruit, train, encourage, and develop – so that all are enabled to ring as well as they can
  4. Take care of bells and their fittings, with advice, practical help and funding
  5. Foster an appreciation of bells and ringing in the wider general public
