The Association strongly encourages all bellringers within the Norwich Diocese to join the NDA. Membership provides the opportunities for ringers to participate in a wide range of ringing activities with fellow ringers as well as being covered by the Association’s ringer insurance. Membership also provides vital funds for the Association to promote ringing within the Diocese, provide training activities for all members and sponsor bell restoration projects and maintenance activities.
Members are elected at their respective Branch quarterly meetings and, following the introduction of the GDPR in May 2018, with a fully completed Membership Application Form which can be found below.
