More than 40 applications were received from bell ringers from York and the wider region.  The Minster is delighted that several members of the former band will ring with newcomers including some talented and experienced young ringers under the age of 18.  The band will be led by head teacher Angela Mitchell who was announced as the cathedral’s new Head of Bell Tower in June.

York Minster plans to have a year round recruitment process that will give experienced bell ringers moving to York and the region, the opportunity to apply to join the team at any time.  Information about ringing at the Minster will also be available for talented bell ringers arriving at York’s universities and colleges this Autumn.

The band will come together for the first time in September for induction.  They will then work with the Head of Bell Tower and the Minster team to arrange their practice schedule and ringing days for the rest of the year.

Recruitment and induction of all Minster staff and volunteers, including the new volunteer bell ringing team, is carried out in line with the Church of England’s Safer Recruitment processes focusing on safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults, security, health and safety.
