Quarter Peal Week - April/May


Our quarter peal week takes place from Sat 28th April to Sun 6th May. It includes two Sundays and we hope that local bands will attempt quarters on their own bells on these days. The week between the two weekends can also be used by local or mixed bands in the same way.

The main event is quarter peal day on Sat 5th May. Quarters are planned throughout the day and will be followed by a meal at the 'Golden Orient' chinese buffet restaurant in Stafford.

Our last Meeting


In April we visited the heart of the diocese, Lichfield Cathedral. The day started with early afternoon ringing on the eight at nearby Whittington before moving on to the ten at the Cathedral.

Several ringers took the opportunity to grab our home Cathedral, not to mention one or two of the rather splendid tea shops in the nearby vicinity.

Safeguarding of children and young people is an important issue both at a tower and an association level. The Association has therefore appointed a Safeguarding Co-ordinator, produced guidelines for tower captains, and policies and procedures for association events.

Copies of the documents can be found on our Publications page. They can also be obtained from our Safeguarding Co-ordinator, Ros Daybell.

100 Club


The Association runs 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.
