AGM - Sat 2nd Dec


This year's AGM is at Leek. So why not make a note of the date and come along to ring on this excellent ring of 10 bells, and enjoy the ringers' tea.

A few of our long-term committee members are standing down this year. If you or someone in your tower would like to get involved with running the Association, please do not hesitate to volunteer. If you would like further information please contact our Chairman, Time Hine, for an informal chat.

Our November Meeting


Nearly 50 members and visitors enjoyed ringing at our November meeting. We started with morning ringing at Tutbury followed by lunch and afternoon ringing at Rolleston, leaving time to get home for bonfire night.

Ringing ranged from rounds to 8-spliced and several points in between. Our thanks to the Tutbury and Rolleston for hosting the meeting and to the Rolleston ringers for the lunch.




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.
