Change-ringers - a list for change-ringers and other traditional bellringers

About Change-ringers
This list, founded by Ken Olum in 1992, is the oldest mailing list devoted to change ringing. Its policy is that messages should be directly related to ringing. Subscribers are asked to conform to the list policy. The current moderator is Simon Bond. It is administered on behalf of The Ringing World by Richard Smith. Only subscribers may post to the list.

There is another list for ringers, called "ringing-chat", which has a less restrictive policy on content. See its web page for further information.

You may also be interested in the Changeringing Wiki. This is hosted by Graham John and supersedes the RINGWIKI which was hosted on this server.
