We give support and training throughout the area, promote bell ringing and provide bell ringing advice.

AGM - Sat 2nd DecemberDecember brings our Annual General Meeting complete with ringers tea. The location is the new ring of 12 at Stafford with ringing starting at 3pm followed by tea at 5pm and evening ringing to finish the day.
We will also be holding the 100 Club super draw. (See below for further details of the 100 Club.)
Details of the AGM are here...
Activity GroupsSeveral ringing groups are active in the North Staffs area. These are organised by the group leaders and provide a variety of ringing opportunities. Some groups are mainly social, while other concentrate on a particular aspect of ringing.
Details of these groups and when they meet can be found on our Activity Groups page.
(We don't have a group doing the activity in the photo - yet!)
Ringing 2030For many years the average age of ringers has been increasing. We are now at the point where ringing could die out as these older ringers retire from bands.
To address this the Central Council of Church Bell Ringers (CCCBR) has launched an inititive to recruit more ringers under the age of 40.
See the CCCBR website to read more.
100 ClubThe Association runs a '100 Club' to raise funds for the Bell Restoration Fund. Members pay a subsciption of £12 and are entered in 5 draws in the year.
There are 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.

Gay's StaysPhil Gay has supplied ash stays for many years, with profits going to the Keele belfry funds. The stock has been somewhat depleted recently, but Phil now had a replenishment and can again provide a wide range of sizes.
If you need a stay or want a couple for standby, please contact Phil on or by email ( ).
BRF - Raising funds while you shopWe now have an easy way to raise extra funds for our Bell Restoration Fund. The BRF has been registered on Easyfundraising and if you shop at any of the 4000+ retailers available via their website, the BRF gets cashback. It doesn't add anything to the cost to your shopping, just gives a bit of extra income to the BRF.
Retailers include well known brands like M&S, John Lewis, Argos, Dunelm, Currys and many many more.
You can shop either via the Easyfundraising website or by downloading their App from Google Play or the Apple App Store.
If you have any questions please email our Treasurer, Liz Fitzgibbon.
