William Bosworth (Editor)

Will has been Editor of The Ringing World since November 2019, succeeding Robert Lewis after his nineteen years in the chair. Will learnt to ring in Dorset as a child, did too much during his time as a student in Birmingham, and rang with the band at Great St Mary’s in Cambridge during his time there as a doctoral student. He now lives in Peterborough, where he sings in the Cathedral Choir. 

He joined the Ringing World team as Editorial Assistant in 2016, gaining experience in all aspects of the company and preparing the journal’s content, along with the occasional writing assignment.

Trisha Shannon (Editorial Assistant)

Trisha joined the Ringing World as Editorial Assistant in 2022 following several years working for and around the Church of England and the Anglican Communion. Born in Canada, she learned to ring in Cape Town, where a small but dedicated band keeps the Cathedral bells going and always welcomes visitors from abroad. While in South Africa, Trisha was involved in the early days of online news reporting, as well as working in traditional print magazine and book publishing. She lives in South London and still welcomes visitors to quite a few local towers.

With her husband she raises two children and a dog who all enjoy campervan holidays and long dog walks in the countryside. Jacky enjoys babysitting her five grandchildren, supports Chelsea and is Elvis Presley’s greatest fan. 

Christine H (Accounts Assistant)

Christine coordinates and oversees all aspects of the accounting process at The Ringing World on a part-time basis. Whilst juggling life as a busy working Mum, she occasionally finds the luxury of spare time to indulge her enthusiasm for gardening and following country pursuits.

Sam started work with us in July 2020 as a web developer. As well as recording performances, our BellBoard site is an increasingly important communication tool, and also hosts some of the vital administrative functions of the company.
