Leicester Diocesan Guild of Church Bell Ringers
Welcome to the home page of the LDG. Our aims are to:
- promote ringing of church bells for religious services
- advance the art of change-ringing with frequent meetings of members of the Guild
- extend the appreciation of change-ringing among the general public
- ensure that church bells are maintained in proper condition
- provide instructors in the art of change ringing
- teach good striking - the ability to ring one bell after the previous one
- provide funding for maintaining and improving bells through the Bell Restoration Fund.
The work of the Guild covers the whole of the Leicester Diocese of the Church of England. The Leicester Diocesan Guild was formed in 1946 from part of the Midland Counties Association. It currently has more than 700 members spread across six regions or districts as they are known:
- Market Harborough
- Melton Mowbray
Members are also welcome to join us on Facebook!
Members Area and Guild AGM
We have recently created a new area of the Guild Website for us to host content that should be available to the Membership, but not to the public in general.
With the AGM coming up, we'd like to try and distribute as many of the reports and other pieces of information for the AGM ahead of time, by providing them online for members to review prior to the meeting.
If you don't have an account already, then you will need to create an account - look for the "Create an account" Link on the bottom left side near the Log in button.
Once you have an account, then details for the AGM can be found here:
Thanks - and we'll see you all at Syston on the 31st.

Pop of the Past
If you went to the Guild Dinner in February and took home a copy of the Pop of the Past Quiz that Alison produced as a BRF Fund Raiser, you can now get a copy of the answers here.
70 Copies where sold and only one of the entries was 100% correct!
Congratulations to the winner, and thank you to Alison for producing the quiz!
