The Hand Bell Ringers of Great Britain (HRGB) was formed in 1967. The East Midlands region was the first of the eight regions to be formed and its inaugural meeting was held at St Wulfram’s Secondary Modern School, Grantham in April 1975. This region has 24 member groups of Handbell ringers. The region stretches from Northamptonshire in the south to Nottinghamshire in the north


We will arrange a free to attend "Get Back To Ringing" event when we are confident (?) that it can be a safe event for all to attend and enjoy.

Watch this space for more details as they become available - and team correspondents will receive the full details in due course.

The East Midlands Region Team is now meeting in person at Finkin St, Grantham on the fourth Sunday in the month from 1.30pm. Please contact Jane (Region Secretary) if you might be interested in joining the team.

The East Midlands Region are planning to hold their third virtual/mini rally on Sunday 17th October 2021 from 2.30 - 4.30pm. As in the previous two events, there will be some "Air" ringing, videos of handbell groups from around the world, a quiz and some time for a chat and hopefully some international input. Details will be forwarded to team correspondents and will also be emailed to you as an individual HRGB East Midlands Region member if your current email address is registered on the HRGB Members database. If you would like more information please contact either Mike Johnson (Region Chair) or Jane Heald (Region Secretary) (contact details in your newsletter).

If anyone has any handbell related images/photos that they would like to display on this website, please send them to me (Mike Johnson - Contact details on the contacts page)
