Fun with Bells – newsletter 20th March 2020

Looking for your hints and tips

Whilst it isn’t possible to ring at the moment, I’d like to share ideas on the podcast of what people are doing when they can’t ring.

From bell ringing related projects to reading a book (bell ringing related or not) to gardening – let me know what you recommend ringers do during these strange times.

Here is my explanation and an example of an audio recording from Louise Booth for the show:


It’s very easy to record your message at https://www.speakpipe.com/FunWithBells and, if necessary, you can re-record it until you are happy with it.

Seeking feedback on the podcast

We would really like to know some more about who is listening to the show and what they think of it. There is a very short survey at bit.ly/FWB2020. If you put on the kettle then you will have finished it before your tea is ready to make.

Listen to the podcast with your Alexa using TuneIn skill

You will be able to say “Alexa, play the Fun with Bells podcast from Tune In”.
