Quarter Peal Week - April/May


Why not take part in our quarter peal week which takes place from Sat 29th April to Sun 7th May. We can't promise you the acrobatics of the lad in the photo, but we can offer a chance to take part in one or more quarters and a social event on the evening of Sat 6th May.

Whether you are an experienced ringer or a first timer a bit nervous about ringing your first quarter, don't hesitate. Just click the link below and sign up for as little or as much as you want.

Proposed Rule Change


The Association committee are proposing changes to the way committee operates. This will require changes to rules 13 and 14 of the Association. A notice detailling these changes has been sent to all towers with a request to display it on notice boards.

The changes will be proposed at the June business meeting. We need a quorum of 30 to make rule changes, so would be grateful if as many members as possible attend this business meeting.

April Meeting


Our April 1st meeting was at Checkley and Draycott in the Moors. Checkley bells were first to be enjoyed. They are an easy going six in a modern ringing room, but the anti-clockwise hanging almost caught out one or two people!

After tea at Checkley we moved on to Draycott for some eight bell ringing. We managed to ring special method Pudsey here before going on to the Draycott Arms to finish the evening.

Our thanks to Checkley and Draycott for hosting this meeting and to all the helpers at Checkley for the traditional ringers' tea.

100 Club


The Association is running a '100 Club' to raise funds for the Bell Restoration Fund. The way it works is that members pay a subsciption of £12 and are entered in 5 draws in the year. There will be four prize draws, usually at business meetings, and one Superdraw at the Association's AGM. If fully subscribed the first prize will be £50 at the prize draws and £100 at the super draw.

So if you would like a flutter in aid of a good cause, please contact our 100 Club organiser, Chris Adams.
