Congratulations to our Essex Trophy team!

Essex Trophy Band

 Congratulations to the Sussex team who came first in the 10 bell Essex Trophy Striking competition held in Hertford earlier this month. This competition has been running since 1979 and has been won by Sussex on no fewer than 8 occasions now (the last time being in 2007). Superlative S Royal was the chosen test piece, not the easiest method to strike and the standard was high. 6 teams took part - Essex, Hertfordshire, Kent, Middlesex, Surrey and Sussex.

Thanks to Jeremy Alford who organised the band and practices this year. We look forward to welcoming teams to Sussex next year when it is our turn to host.

The Sussex band included regular 10 bell ringers from across the county:

Jeremy Alford, Warnham (C)
Simon Alford, Warnham
Sandra Alford, Warnham
Caroline House, Brighton
David Perkins, East Grinstead
David Kirkcaldy, Steyning
Jonathan Spencer, Lindfield
Stephen Beckingham, Laughton
Alan Pink, St Leonards on Sea
Simon Meyer, Shipley.

Celebratory Ringing - 100 years of Girl Guides

This September marks 100 years since the formation of the 1st Lower Beeding Guides.

Mandy Wicking, one of the ringers at Lower Beeding, who is also a guide leader, is organising a range of celebrations one of which is a service there on Sunday 24th September at 3.00pm.

We would love to get together a band of former or present guides to ring before the service. If you are suitably qualified, interested and available to ring, please contact

Taking forward CCCBR reform (message from CCCBR President)

CCCBR logo

Many people will be aware that the proposed CRAG reforms were welcomed by the Central Council at their meeting in Edinburgh last month. Now they are looking for a wide range of people - but all passionate about ringing - to help take reform of the way ringing is organised nationally forward.
