Following the devastating fire at the Notre-Dame cathedral in Paris on Monday afternoon (15th April), the Archbishops of Canterbury & York and Prime Minister Teresa May have asked for bells at churches and cathedrals across the UK to ring out in solidarity when possible this Thursday 18th April (Maundy Thursday).

If you can, please try and gather some ringers to ring at any time on Thursday in any way you see fit (open, half-muffled etc.) and add your performance to the BellBoard event that has been created to record the ringing. These performances will then be published together in an upcoming edition of The Ringing World.    

May - Challenge Month


The Association is having it's first Challenge Month in May 2019. Whether you are a new ringer or been at it for 25 years or more, there's always something new to try. So why not rise to the challenge and give it a go this May?

Challenges could be anything from ringing a touch of call changes to doing your first quarter or calling a peal. See our events page for May for more ideas and how to get involved.

Last Meeting - Norton


Our last meeting was on the fine ring of eight bells at Norton in the Moors, just north of Stoke. Although numbers were fewer than normal, a wide variety of methods were rung including Original, Stedman and Cambridge.

Our thanks to the Norton ringers for hosting the meeting.

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.
