Naoko, Ringer of the Year
and Tony, now Assistant Ringing Master of the Stroud Branch

Nook and Tony

At the AGM of the Stroud District branch of Church Bellringers, Naoko Ponter was presented with the prestigious 'Ringer of the Year' award in recognition of the great progress she has made this year - the range of methods she has learnt to ring and her first quarter peal on Sept 27th. Furthermore, Tony Natt has been made Assistant Ringing Master in the district.

Lastly, the Minchinhampton Tower was declared to be the 'Tower of the Year' and will represent the district in the Glos & Bristol Diocesan Assoc. of Church Bellringers competition. We are very pleased to have 2 new learners in the tower now but we are still looking for more!
