Becoming a member

The Guild can offer you the opportunity to further your ringing, to ring and socialise with other members and to take part in the regular events we organise. By joining you are supporting the work of the Bell Restoration Fund which provides grants to towers needing work. You also receive a membership certificate and a free copy of the Annual Report.

The minimum qualification for Ringing Membership is to be able to handle a bell and ring rounds competently.  New members are elected at any of our Business Meetings. They are usually proposed by their Tower Captain by completing this form which should be sent to the Guild Secretary together with the appropriate fee.


For a Peal to be attributed to the Guild and appear in the Annual Report, each member of the band must contribute the fees above and be a member of the Guild. Non resident members can be elected at the time through a belfry election which is to be ratified at a subsequent business meeting.

Please submit peal fees, and non-resident membership following a belfry election, to:

  • Carlisle Church Bell Ringers
  • Sort code: 01-09-54
  • Acc no: 01002678

If making online payments, please specify the location and date of the peal, and/or the person being elected, in your Reference.
