March Quarterly Meeting


As we prepare for the arrival of spring, our meeting on Saturday 4th March takes us to the canal side town of Gnosall. We start the afternoon just down the road on the six bells of Haughton before moving on to Gnosall for tea and the Business meeting. Evening ringing is on the eight bells at Gnosall.

As this is a quarterly meeting, there will also be a 100 club draw with four cash prizes. See lower on this page for details of the 100 club.

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 detailing these changes is being 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.

New Members Meeting - Feb


Over 50 new and existing members met up at Alton on Sat 4th February for our new members meeting. The first part of the meeting was for new members and their tower captains, with other members joining us later in the afternoon.

It was good to see so many new members in attendance and we would love to see you all again at our next meeting in March.

Our thanks to the Alton ringers for hosting the event and providing a fine tea of soup, roll and hot dog followed by a selection of delicious cakes.

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.
