Ring for Fitness trend takes off

13 Dec 2012

Our Ring for Fitness campaign has taken off with would-be bellringers across the country being encouraged to get involved.

On the not insignificant date of 12.12.12 Rosi Lister our Director for the North Region set out in the early morning frost to speak to BBC Breakfast journalist Tim Muffet and parttake in a ringing session with the Church Bell Ringers at St Mary's Ecclesfield. 

Rosi was interviewed three times throughout the morning, Tower Captain Phil Hirst was also interviewed about how enjoyable and challenging bell ringing can be. All agreed with YMCAfit's research which found that the ancient art of campanology can contribute to practitioners’ fitness.

Various other news outlets have covered the story and this craze is about to catch on!
