Welcome to the CUGCR Website

The Cambridge University Guild of Change Ringers was formed in 1879 to practise the art of change ringing. Today we are an active student society who organise many ringing and social events throughout the year.

We ring at several churches within Cambridge, and welcome ringers of all abilities. To find out more about the Guild, explore this website, e-mail secretary@cugcr.org.uk, or feel free to join us at one of our practices.

Posted 29th April 2015

It is with regret that we report that Paul K Williamson died on 29th April, aged 89. He was Secretary of the Guild in 1944, and remained an regular participant at Guild events until recent years. He rang 177 peals for the Guild, including the Guild’s first on twelve, and two Trinity College peals.

His funeral will be at 1.30pm on 18th May at Ash Priors, Somerset where he lived. Ringing for the service will be by a pre-organised band, but there will be general ringing following the service and refreshments at Ash Priors Village Hall.
