Walk & Ring - August 5th


As in previous years, our August meeting is a walk, lunch and ring. The walk starts at Barlaston Church at 10:15am. It is an easy 3 miler around the countryside of Barlaston and is followed by lunch at The Upper House. The ringing part is on the light six at Barlaston starting at 2:15pm.

So why not get out your boots and join us for a pleasant day out. See our events page for all the details.

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.

July Meeting


Our last meeting on Sat 1st July was a change from the normal format. The ringing was all in the evening starting at Bramshall and then moving on to Rocester.

Bramshall was the Association's first visit to a three bell tower. A vertical ladder and ringing in a straight line facing the wall was certainly a different experience! At Rocester things were somewhat more conventional with the eight ropes in a clockwise circle. We put them to good use ringing a variety of call changes and methods including the special, Middlesex Triples.
