Ringing with Guides

Ringing With Guides and Brownies

Handbells can be introduced to Guides and Brownies in 2 ways:

  • Inviting a small group to visit an HRGB team to see and hear handbells being rung
  • Taking a handbell, handchime or Belleplate set to a Brownie meeting to aloow them to 'have a go'

If may be possible to incorporate handbells into work toward a badge; the Guiding organisation will usually accept a reasoned argument as to how something can fit - eg that ringing is part of the musical cultural heritage of the UK.

If you are involved in the Guiding movement and would like to explore opportunities for handbell ringing or perhaps just arrange a ‘taster’ session where a handbell leader brings in some bells for an evening, please contact the National Secretary who will try to find a local handbell team.
