The St Michael and All Angels Ringing Team (SMAART)

is a group of hand bell ringers. All ages

can play and the only requirement is an

ability to count to six, which most of us

manage most of the time! We use both

hand bells and Belleplates - a cheaper,

lighter version with a sharper sound.  We practice at Willowmere Extra Care Development premises in Middlewich on Monday evenings at 7 pm.

Our repertoire is slowly increasing in range. It includes hymns, carols, folk and popular songs and tunes. We also give occasional public performances. Anyone is welcome to come and have a go. Over the past year we have played for St. Lukes Hospice, the Christingle Service at St. Michaels, Salinae, the residents of Willowmere, Middlewich Heritage Society, various WIs and Mothers’ Union.  We recently did a second workshop for 2nd Cledford Brownies. We also took part in the North West Regional Rally at Flixton.

Meetings are throughout the year except for August, so contact Pam Jackson on 01606 832118 or email Sue Hawkes at for dates.

Towerbell Ringers

Middlewich is rightly proud of its magnificent 8 bells that have rung out every week for years. We are now desperately short of ringers. Maybe you have been trained and given up or would like to be trained.

Call our Tower Captain Ian Taylor on 01606 834095 who would be delighted to talk to the experienced or inexperienced.

Mothers’ Union
