Coronavirus restrictions from 2nd December 2020
Published: Tuesday, 01 December 2020 21:55
The government have recently announced the restrictions that will apply in England beyond Wednesday 2nd December.
East and West Sussex are being placed under Tier 2 'High Alert' restrictions.
Under Tier 2 restrictions it is not possible to socialise with anyone you don't live with (support bubbles are permitted) in an indoor environment. This includes while in a place of worship.
Unfortunately this means that ringing in towers can't resume for the time being. (It may be possible to ring within a family unit, the Central Council will hopefully advise later on in the week).
However, the rule of six is reintroduced for meeting outside. Therefore it is possible for socially distanced handbell ringing or other social activities to take place (weather permitting!).
There is a review of these restrictions on Wednesday 16th December, we can only hope that there is an easing into Tier 1 to allow ringing to resume once more.
For more information please read the Government local restriction tiers page, together with the updated CCCBR COVID guidance.

The first word that springs to mind when you hear the phrase “committee meeting” may well be “boooorrrring!”, but hopefully you’ll find several things of interest in this quick summary!
- Key updates:
The pilot online mini-course (“Intro to Ringing Room” on 28th October) was a success, so we’re planning to run a series of online courses using Ringing Room and Zoom, starting with Plain Hunt (14th November).
- Hamish is organising another Handbell Morning on Saturday 28th November (see the website calendar for more details).
- Save the date! SCACR Christmas Quiz (online) on Saturday 19th December.
- Steph and Hamish have written an “Events Organisers’ Guidance” document. This is to help people with events planning, including advertising, risk assessment, and safeguarding. Although originally intended for in-person events, a lot of it also applies to online events. The guidance document can be found in our Resources area: Other Documents
