Sat 29th October



Betley - Sat 5th Nov


Our next meeting takes place on bonfire night, but we will avoid the fireworks by ringing in the morning and early afternoon with a "ringers' tea" style lunch in the middle.

The ringing takes place on the six bells at Betley. So be sure to reserve the date, book your lunch and take a look at the special methods. Full details are on our Events page.

October Meeting


For the October meeting we offered an 8-bell experience day. This provided all ringers an opportunity to ring things on eight bells. For some it was a chance to ring on 8 bells for the first time and for others an opportunity to look up and ring a new method with a steady band.

The Eccleshall band provided a hot lunch of soup followed by sandwiches and cake. Our thanks to the Eccleshall ringers for hosting the event and providing the lunch.    

100 Club


The Association is running 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 Treasurer, Rosemary Wright.
