Children go wild for Diocese of Norwich’s action packed tent

Children packed into a fun-filled canopy at the Royal Norfolk Show, courtesy of the Diocese of Norwich.

Their tent at the showground was filled with everything from geodomes to practise bells to ring.

Richard Carter is a bellringer with the St Peter Mancroft Church in Norwich. He said: “I can teach kids to bellring in 10 minutes, or it can take hours. We’d just like to get people involved and realise very often when they hear a bell ring there’s a person doing that, and that they can learn.”

Mr Carter continued: “I take this bell ringing practise equipment to schools to encourage their pupils to get involved with the Mancroft Ringing Discovery Centre, which will be opening soon.”

Children also enjoyed playing on a hybrid game of twister and rock climbing, where instructions numbered one to 20 got increasingly more difficult.

Children also enjoyed building their own church out of lego, the contents of which included a line of conga dancers, and a cowboy guarding the entrance.
