6-Bell Striking Contest


This year's six bell striking contest takes place at Dilhorne on Saturday 3rd June. These are easy-going bells in an excellent venue. So why not get practicing and enter your band?

As well as tower bands, there will be space for a few scratch bands. So if you are not in a band just turn up on the day and let Lee Cooke know that you would like to be in a scratch band.

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.

No acrobatics, but a total of twenty quarters were rung during the week from Sat 29th April to Sun 7th May. A 210 of call changes was also rung at Eccleshall.

There were 18 firsts of various kinds including 3 first quartersans 2 first insides. In addition, 3 people rang their first quarter in more than 20 years. Our congratulations to all concerned.

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.
