Welcome to Kent County Association of Change Ringers

Membership is open to all change ringers and handbell ringers in Kent (subject to Rule 4(i)). The available membership types are shown in the table on the right.

All practising members are entitled to:

  • Vote at the AGM
  • Receive news updates from the Association by e-mail
  • An annual Handbook/Report (online and printed by request)
  • Apply to the Training Fund for contributions towards the cost of training courses & equipment (see the Training Fund Guidelines)
  • Ring peals for the Association
  • Insurance Cover

Non-ringers may be elected as Associate Members.  Associate Members are not able to vote at any meeting of the Association.

A ringer not residing in the Association’s area may be elected as a Non–Resident Life Member on payment of a single subscription equal to 75% of the Practising Member annual subscription. This can be done at a meeting or at the start of a peal.
