Next Meeting - Sat 2nd March


The next meeting is an afternoon event at the east Staffordshire town of Tutbury on Saturday 2nd March. We start with a short business meeting at 1:30pm before trying out our skills on the 10½cwt ring of eight bells.

Tutbury has a ruined medieval castle on a hill close to the church. Mary, Queen of Scots was held there from 1568 until 1570 after her defeat at the battle of Langside. Today it used for various events and as a wedding venue. Our picture, you will be relieved to know, is of the castle and not the church!

See the Events pages for details of this meeting, including parking.    View more...

Last Meeting - Dilhorne


Our February meeting was a special for new members who joined in the last year. The first part of the meeting was reserved for new members and helpers, before being joined by other ringers for a pre-tea ring.

Tea was one of the usual splendid Dilhorne affairs, with hot food followed by tea and cakes. Our thanks to the Dilhorne ringers for hosting the event and providing the tea.

For a full report on the meeting please see the spring newsletter, available at the March meeting.

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, Ray Daw.
