This is the way forward………………in BREDGAR!

Engaging with the young and teaching them how to ring.  What better way than to try their hand for such a special occasion as St. George’s Day.  In a delightful corner of Kent tucked in amongst its chalk hills is the village of Bredgar where Robert de Bredgar founded the College of Holy Trinity in the 14th Century and where stands its church of St. John the Baptist.  An ancient church that has a font that has been in use for 900 years.  No doubt this is where these young ringers, all ex pupils of the local Primary School, were christened.   Under the guidance of the local Tower Captain Tim Ford and his band, five pupils aged between 12 and 11 rang out on the 6 bells.  They were Oliver Boughton, Nikita Jacobs, Pria Webster, Isobel Hooper and Katie White. Well done to them and lets hope in years to come they will still be ringing out for St. George.
