Welcome to the website for the Dorset County Association of Church Bell Ringers.
The Dorset County Association of Church Bell Ringers (DCA) is a ringing society based in Dorset (although we have members across the country) that holds a regular monthly practice and other events (e.g. Bell Ringing Outings, Meals, etc.). We have a Bell Restoration Fund (a registered charity) and also a Mobile Bell Tower which can be used for recruitment at locations without a bell tower (i.e. outdoors at fairs, sports halls, etc).
DCA’s official Facebook page can be found at
Despite its name, the Association is non-territorial; it does operate mainly within the county of Dorset and adjoining areas, but members live and ring wherever there are bells to be rung.
All members are Life Members.
The main officers of the association are:
Chairman – Nick Lawrence
Ringing Master – Robin Mears
Secretary / Treasurer – Nigel Pridmore
