  1. Michael J Pomeroy

    I am very sorry to report that Mike passed away on Monday 13th March, following a lengthy battle with cancer. Mike was a leading light in Irish ringing, and will be sorely missed by everyone who knew him.

    The funeral will be at St Mary’s Cathedral, Limerick on Tuesday 21st at 12 noon.

    Matthew Higby (on behalf of the Pomeroy family).

  3. Eyes on 2030 - The RW in the Future

    The Ringing World Board is holding a full survey about our activities and are asking the views of all ringers. We want to find out why ringers around the world value (or don’t) the Ringing World and all its activities, including BellBoard and the Ringing World National Youth Contest.

    Please spend 15–25 minutes to complete the survey today and share your views with us. And please encourage all ringers you know to respond – subscribers and non-subscribers, BellBoard users or not. Your response will help us choose our path to 2030.

    For more information, see this article in the 3rd March issue of The Ringing World.

  4. New Year's Festival of Bells

    The New Year’s Festival of Bells event can be viewed here, and your ringing can be linked to it if you wish.

  5. Are you a leading quarter-peal ringer?

    If you have rung more than 100 quarter peals in 2022, or conducted more than 50, please help us ensure your total is correct. If you think you have passed these targets and if any of the following apply, please let us know:

    • If you changed your name during the year
    • If you are aware of any errors that need correction
    • If your name may have variants, including nicknames, initials (or if it may have appeared in brackets)
    • Or if you just know that there are QPs that don’t appear on a standard search on your name.

    If you think you are a leading quarter peal ringer, please get in touch on editor@ringingworld.co.uk by 10th January.
