They brought this up a year ago as a possibility.  We told them visitors, and occasional locals, do not let us know in advance when they are coming.  At that time, the plan where visitors would just say "I'm a ringer" and the doorkeeper would let them in was perfectly acceptable to the church.  Can we re-suggest that?  If that's not okay for some reason, how about we ask that the doorkeepers flash the light if someone says they're a ringer?

Old North has changed to a paid entry site. (http://oldnorth.com/plan-a-visit/) . Please see the note below, and if you encounter any issues please let me know so I can work with people at Old North. In particular, let's make sure that visitors are aware of this and are accompanied to the ringing chamber.


Today we moved to paid admission at Old North.  I don't expect that it will have any impact on the ease with which the ringers access the tower, but I did want to give you a heads-up.   We are now asking our educators to be mindful that our visitors are wearing their admission stickers.   If we find that there is repeated confusion or that the ringers are asked a lot if they need help finding the admission booths, then we can talk about whether we generate some sort of badge or card for the guild members.

If at all possible, when you have guests for the ringing chamber, could a member of the guild either provide their names in advance OR wait downstairs to bring them up?  I want your guests to have an easy and hospitable entrance to the tower too.
