July Events


July is a busy month with a ringing meeting, a committee meeting, two training events and a canal quarter peal day.

Things kick off with our monthly meeting at Tunstall and Wolstanton on July 2nd. Note that there will not be a ringers' tea on this occasion, so please bring you own. Hot drinks will be provided. And don't forget to take a look at the special methods.

At the end of the month is a quarter peal day to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the start of building the Trent and Mersey Canal. Take a look at our Events pages for all the details and how to get involved.

Our judge, Alan Walters, presented each band with a certificate and Stafford with the shield. Dilhorne were awarded the Borrett cup. Our thanks to Caverswall and friends for hosting the competition and providing the 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 Treasurer, Rosemary Wright.
