M1 Refresher Workshop - Oxted

About this workshop:

This workshop is for those people who have already attended an ART Module 1 Day Course and want to refresh their skills.

You will work with a small group of fellow teachers in the tower on:

  • Raising a bell
  • Putting it all together
  • Ringing down
  • Observation and feedback
  • What next?

The following components can be slotted in if requested in advance:

  • Introducing the backstroke on an up bell
  • Introducing the handstroke
  • Changing speed of ringing

The practical sessions will give you plenty of time to practise and discuss your teaching skills in a safe environment.


Although teas and coffees are available on the day, the course organisers will not be providing lunch.

However, there are several cafes and pubs within a very short walk of the Church, including a Wetherspoons and a fish and chip shop if delegates would like to get something to eat.

Roger Booth


Having learnt to ring as a teenager in Gloucestershire, Roger has held various posts within local ringing societies and has acted as tower captain at various towers at different stages in his ringing career. As a Chartered Surveyor, Roger also played a leading role in five major bell restoration projects, and several smaller ones. Roger has taught many people to ring over the years and to help ensure there are adequate numbers of ringers to ring these restored bells, Roger now focusses his attention on issues of recruitment and training. He also plays a leading role in the work of the Charmborough Trust. Roger is currently a member of the ART Management Committee and an ART Tutor. He is particularly interested in initiatives to improve the quality of teaching and make more effective use of trainers through the use of simulators.
