Monthly Meeting - Jan 6th


About 30 ringers attended our first meeting of 2018 which took place at Madeley on Saturday 6th January. It was an afternoon only meeting, ably run by our new Ringing Master, Phil Michie. There were several goes as the special method, Original Minor, with only the one (mis)called by me needing a 'Take Two' !

The raffle raised over £30 for the Bell Restoration Fund with the prizes going to Lydia and Jan. Our thanks to Sue Twigg of Madeley for providing the much appreciated tea, coffee & biscuits.

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.
