About Us

We are a small bellringing band that ring at the St. Nicholas Church in Hurst. The band is part of the Loddon Ringing Hub within Sonning Deanery Branch of the Oxford Diocesan Guild of Church Bell Ringers.

We ring for practice on most Monday evenings as well as for Sunday Services and other occasions.

Regular ringing at Hurst was restarted in 2018 as a new group of regular learners were recruited for the Ringing Remembers project to commemorate the centenary of Armistice Day, and in memory of the local ringers who lost their lives in the First World War.

Why “Normal for Hurst”? Because this is a running joke about the standard of ringing at the tower by the relatively inexperienced band.
