Association Outing - Sept 1st


This year's outing is by tram around five towers in Birmingham and the West Midlands. Parking is free and the whole day costs just £9 including tram fare. So why not put the date in your diary and join us for a different type of outing. Full details are on our events web page.

Our Previous Meeting


Taking advantage of the summer weather, our August meeting took the form of a walk followed by lunch and then ringing at Gnosall. After meeting up in Gnosall we caught the bus to Haughton to start the walk. An easy 3 miles through the countryside back to Gnosall was followed by lunch and a welcome drink in the Royal Oak. And the day finished with afternoon ringing at Gnosall church.

Our thanks to Phil Michie for organising the walk and welcoming us to Gnosall.

Programme Review - Ideas Wanted

Whatever your idea, the committee would love to hear from you.

Please email any ideas or suggestions to our secretary, Jan Hine by September so the committee can include them in their discusions of next year's programme.


Ringing Remembers


To commemorate the 1400 bell ringers who died in the First World War, the Central Council of Church Bell Ringers are involved in a new campaign to recruit 1400 new bell ringers.

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.
