The Norwich Diocesan Association on Ringers was founded in 1877 and promotes the ringing of church bells for divine service throughout the Diocese. Within our group of parishes we have three towers of bells at Garvestone and Reymerston churches. 2018 saw the culmination of four years' hard work to fundraise to restore the bells at a third tower in Barnham Broom church and the three towers rang together to celebrate the centenary of the end of World War One in 2018.
If you are interested in learning to ring, or returning to ringing after a break, or a ringer recently moved to the area, you can be sure of a warm welcome. Practice nights are at St Peter & St Paul's Church Barnham Broom or St Peter’s Church in Reymerston on Fridays, usually starting about 7.30pm.
This year, the centenary of the Armistice, the Bishop of Norwich came to re-dedicate the Bells at Barnham Broom Church with a Remembrance Day service. From November 2018, we have three sets of Bells pealing within the Group at Reymerston, Garvestone and Barnham Broom.
This month we heard the first peal of the restored bells! What a wonderful sound!

In June 2020 we were unable to have our usual wonderful bellringing to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of VE day. Instead our local bellringers rang in Barnham Broom. The ringing can be see on their facebook page here
