Heritage Open Days - 8th to 11th September
The text of an e-mail from the Public Relations Officer of the Central Council of Church Bell Ringers
Dear Public Relations Officer, Society Secretary and Central Council member
Please encourage your towers to register for Heritage Open days so we can reach our target of 500 churches open for ringing-related events and so that towers opening receive the support package from Heritage Open Days. Registration closes at the end of July and the sooner you register the better. You can register here - make sure you tick the box to indicate there are ringing-related activities included, otherwise you wonít be counted towards the 500!
You donít have to open all weekend - at my tower we are doing just three tours on the Friday.
Heritage Open Days are planning a big local media push on 17 July. Make sure you are ready for that and that your association or towers have their own press releases out with their local media. There is more information on the Councilís website here:
Please do see what you can do to help your towers join in, perhaps by joining together to create a ringing event. Thanks so much for your help with this and all good wishes.
