Next Meeting - 4th Nov

Our meeting in November is morning ringing at Tutbury, followed by lunch and afternoon ringing at Rolleston. This then leaves time to get back home for bonfire night!

As we are ringing at two eight's, the special method is Pudsey Surprise Major. Take a look at our events page for a method diagram, times of ringing and a link to book lunch.

Association Dinner - 18th Nov

Why not put the date in your diary and come along to the Association Dinner?
It takes place on the evening of Saturday 18th November at Buffet Island in Newcastle.

Please see our events page for the details of times, venue, cost and how to book. (Please book via the secretary by Wednesday 8th November.)


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.
