Standing Guidance on Ringing from the CCCBR

The Central Council (CCCBR) are continuing to issue guidance on ringing as the government eases the lockdown restrictions.

Regular updates are posted on the Central Council website at

There has been no change to guidance this week. England is in Stage 3 with the Rule of Six applying indoors.

Mindful of there being a lot of guidance and how things have changed in recent months, we have prepared a one page summary that considers each of the guidance topics and mitigation measures (facemasks, hand sanitiser, rope sharing, rule on numbers, length of time, etc), explains the rationale for it, and what it means for ringing in practice.

It is specific to England but Welsh and Scottish versions will be prepared.

Any requests for clarification can be sent to
