About Us

 Please note that there is no bell-ringing at St. Mary's Cathedral at present, due to a damaged rope guide. We will update this page when we know when ringing can resume safely.

Our practice night is Thursday at 7pm. This is preceded at 6.30pm by handling practice for beginners on tied bells.

There is a 12-bell practice on the 2nd Thursday of every month, to which all are welcome. 

The Society comprises honorary, full and probationary members, men and women, currently of ages 25 to 75, and of all kinds of occupations. Outside of St. Mary’s, we may ring at other towers, locally and within Scotland. We support The Scottish Association of Change-Ringers – our local Association, attending meetings and ringing & social events. We ourselves have annual outings, usually to the north of England, sometimes further afield and enjoy regular social activities. On practice nights, we usually adjourn to a local pub after a busy practice for “refreshment”.
