Westley Award for Church Bell Maintenance – 2024

Towers and bells in good condition will make the environment for ringing more pleasant, easier for ringers to develop their skills and, in particular help new recruits.

Are you relatively new to finding your way around bell installations? Perhaps you are gaining experience in what to check upstairs in a tower, what may be unusual and interesting, or in poor condition and likely to cause ringers difficulties while ringing?  Hopefully, you are starting to make some improvements and share your experiences with others.

The Stewardship & Management Workgroup of the Central Council of Church Bell Ringers is launching the 2024 award for people who have recently become involved in belfry maintenance and improvement, developing their own skills and helping others to do so. The award will be made at the CCCBR AGM in Exeter in September 2024. The winner will receive £100, kindly donated by Westley Group, and a certificate.

The closing date for applications will be 12 noon on Friday 31st May 2024,
