Submitting and browsing ringing records is quick and easy on BellBoard – you can also confirm performances for print publication in The Ringing World. We hope that you enjoy using BellBoard.

Ringing for Notre Dame

Following the devastating fire at the Notre-Dame cathedral in Paris on Monday afternoon, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, and Prime Minister Teresa May have asked for bells at churches and cathedrals across the UK to ring out in solidarity when possible this Thursday.

If you can, please try and gather some ringers to ring at any time on Thursday in any way you see fit (open, half-muffled etc.) and add your performance to the BellBoard event that has been created to record the ringing. These performances will then be published together in an upcoming edition of The Ringing World.

  • 25th Jan 2016: If you wish to have a group of quarter peals printed together, for example those rung for a district quarter peal week, please create an event for it, enable Linked performances and then select Collate performances in The Ringing World. Please ensure that all performances get associated with this event before (or at least shortly after) the performance submitter sends them for print so they can be caught and collated. This can be done either by the person who submitted the performance, or by the owner of the event; for performances imported from Campanophile, only the latter is possible.
  • 24th Jan: We now have an RSS feed of news bulletins from the front page of BellBoard.
  • 25th Oct 2015: Users who subscribe to The Ringing World may now see this week's issue in PDF format linked prominently from the front page of BellBoard. If you are a subscriber and do not see it when logged in, this is probably because we were unable to link your BellBoard account to your subscription automatically. Contact us and we will link them manually. We also have a library of back issues allowing users to access any issues from your period of subscription. These currently go back to 2011, but we hope to continue that to 2001; they will remain available indefinitely.
  • 6th Aug: A new page shows the days of the year on which you've rung peals or other performances.
  • 4th Jul: It is now possible to download a PDF version of any performance by clicking on the PDF icon in the updated navigation menu above the performance. Many of the old options on that menu have been relegated to a new edit menu marked with a pencil icon. The left and right arrows (or the arrow keys on the keyboard) navigate to the previous and next performances, and the new up arrow returns you to the list. We would be interested in opinions on this new style of menu, especially regarding their usability on phones and tablets.
  • 2nd Jul: BellBoard now tracks the donations you've made, and allows UK tax payers to fill in a Gift Aid declaration allowing The Ringing World to claim 25p from HMRC for every £1.00 donated. This is all linked from the new-look account page, formerly the user preferences page.
