Local ringer and historian Andrew Giles has very kindly made available for free download two of his excellent publications about ringers and bells in our Association's area.
The books are in PDF format and Andrew would be delighted if you would take the opportunity to download and read them at your leisure in the hope that they will increase interest in ringing locally and, if read by non-ringers, inspire readers to get involved and try our fascinating and very sociable pastime.
There are two books available:
- The Bells and Ringers of All Saints' Church, Llanbradach, South Wales
- The Bells and Ringers of St Peter's Church, Pentre, Rhondda, Wales, 1890 – 1954
Please remember that the Copyright for both publications resides with Andrew Giles.

The Association's Management Committee is the body that oversees its running. It meets four times per year and provides the fulcrum for the Association's activities.
The Committee oversees the whole gamut of Association business, from the setting of budgets and the overseeing of financial affairs through to the offering of grant-aid and/or loans from the Bell Restoration Fund.

Don't go to M & S or any of the other High Street retail outlets for that new sweatshirt, polo shirt or T-shirt; we have them available here
Not only can you have our beautiful Association logo on the garment, but you can customise it with your own wording above and below. Why not let the world think that Brad Pitt or Michael Bublé ring at your home tower?
