Next Meetings - Nov & Dec


Early November brings bonfire night, and our meeting on 3rd Nov is a ring-lunch-ring affair leaving plenty of time to get back for the fireworks. Ringing starts at 11am on the six bells at Checkley and is followed by a finger buffet lunch. And after eating we then move on to the eight at Draycott for the afternoon ringing session.

Our AGM in December is at Stoke Minster and is on the Sat 8th December.

Training - Sat 13th Oct


Ever wondered why we ring with open handstrokes, or why changes on five are called Doubles? Answers to these and many other questions will be covered in this training afternoon at Woodlands. It will begin with a presentation covering common questions to do with ringing and then allow plenty of time to answer questions from participants.

If you would like to take part, take a look at our events section and book a place with the course tutor, Phil Gay.

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.

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.
