Monthly Meeting - Sat April 7th


In April we visit the heart of the diocese, Lichfield Cathedral. We start the day with early afternoon ringing on the eight at nearby Whittington. Then it's on to the ten at the Cathedral for four o'clock ringing.

This opportunity to ring at our home Cathedral is one not to be missed, so why not check out the date on our Event pages to see all the details including special methods and Lichfield parking advise.

Note that there is no formal tea, but plenty of tea shops etc. in Lichfield.

Our last Meeting


The light six at Caverswall was the venue for our monthly meeting on Saturday 3rd March. Approximately forty members attended the meeting and enjoyed both the bells and the Caverswall tea.

It was one of the dates in the year when we run our 100 club draw and the lucky winner was Gethin Hine, formerly of Stafford.

Our thanks to the Caverswall ringers for hosting the event and providing the tea.    

Special Methods


Many of our monthly meetings have special methods. Our events pages show the names of the special methods and also have a link to the method diagrams. Diagrams can be both viewed and printed, so now it is easy to look them up ready for the next meeting.

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.
