Message from the Association Chairman
Recent adverse publicity regarding bellringing and bellringers will not have escaped the attention of the Association's Members and, in particular, news which came to prominence nationally regarding the suspension of ringers at a tower in the north of England. Whilst the full story is still emerging, it is becoming clear that child protection is a factor in these events. Whilst all this was happening, the Association's Management Committee was considering issuing Guidance to our Members in respect of Safeguarding and Health & Safety following the publication of the Church in Wales Safeguarding Policy in April 2016.
Neath, St Thomas
Ringing has temporarily stopped at St Thomas, Neath due to the tower being repointed. Hope to be ringing again by the end of March.
