6-Bell Striking Contest


This year's contest takes place on Sat 4th June at Caverswall. Bands ring either 120 changes of Doubles or Minor, or four minutes of call changes. If you are not in a team, come along anyway and join in with a scratch band.

Competition ringing is from 3:30pm to 5pm and is followed by tea and results. This year teams will be placed in Gold, Silver, and Bronze bands with the top few teams being ordered by place. See the last Newsletter for details.

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 Treasurer, Rosemary Wright.
