Coronavirus (COVID-19): Impact on Future Beverley & District Ringing Society Planned Activities and Events

Following the COBRA Meeting held on 16 March, 2020, the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson has urged Britons to avoid pubs, clubs and theatres, and stop non-essential travel in an effort to reduce the impact of the coronavirus. The Government’s advice is that all people should avoid gatherings and crowded places, avoiding all unnecessary social contact.

Subsequently, the Central Council of Church Bell Ringers is recommending “If you haven’t already decided to cancel ringing activities, it seems that now is the time to do so.”

In light of this current situation, and to safeguard our members, the Committee have taken the decision to cancel the following planned activities:

  • 19 March Thursday Club, Elloughton
  • 19 March Eight Bell Practice, Hessle
  • 21 March Twelve Bell Practice, Hull Minster
  • 18 April B&D Meeting, Driffield and Middleton-on-the-Wolds

We will, of course, monitor further guidance and instructions as they become available, and advise accordingly with regard to future planned activities.

For confirmation regarding the status of specific Tower Practices and Service ringing, please liaise directly with the appropriate Tower Contacts listed in the B&D Annual Report.

Thank you for your support and understanding in these challenging circumstances.
