Bell Ringing - Wednesday 30th September

Tonight's practice had all (non-self-isolating) ringers turn up.  We rang our bells up individually to get them ready for ringing.  This week sees another anniversary for Geoff Smith, it is 60 years since he was ordained, both Geoffrey and Margaret joined us for our practice and we celebrated with some ringing.  Congratulations Geoff.

Our subscriptions to the North Staffordshire Association of Change Ringers have been renewed this week for another year, our ringers for this year are:

William Hall
Trevor Stacey
Mervyn Lock
Jocelyne Lock
Dick Bowler
Karen Powell
Trevor Lock 

Thank you to everyone who has renewed, and we've welcomed Karen this year, her ringing skills are improving each week and we really enjoying ringing with her.  She has become a valuable team member.

Unfortunately, Helen and Lydia have not renewed their membership this time.  We would like to thank them for all the support and help they have given us over the past few years and hope it won't be too long before they come and see us again.

William is understandably still self-isolating. We are hoping it won't be too much longer, but with the current situation, it doesn't look like it'll be soon!

We are constantly reviewing the Covid situation, following current local and national guidelines.  The safety of ourselves and families are paramount and feel safe at present.  We have altered the times of our practice (still on Wednesday) to 7.30 until 8.30pm.

This Sunday's Service (4th October) has a start of 10.30am, so we will having a ringing start at 10am.
