Can I ring at weddings? 

A key part of being part of a band of ringers is in participating in all of the band's activities. Inevitably there is an element of hierarchy in the ringing and for special services a tendency to want to field the best and most experienced ringers who can make the best sound. Obviously the time taken to progress to full competency depends on the amount of practice achieved and the formation of bands for special services also depends on people's availability but we would hope that learners would be competent to ring at special services such as weddings within 6 to 9 months of starting.
