Joint Concert with the Abe Hill Ringers

Thursday 21st June Saw us taking part in a joint concert with the Cleckheaton Based Abe Hill Ringers.   The Clifton Village Ringers gave a short concert style performance of 5 tunes, and the Tusday team gave a short performance of two tunes.  The Abe Hill Ringers gave a perfomance of 5 tunes including one they had only started two days earlier!  It was a good night and hopefully this will the first of many other joint events to promote handbell ringing!

North East Region AGM & Rally 2012

Saturday 12th May 2012, saw the full Clifton “Village” Ringers attend the North East Region AGM & Rally in Grassington.  The team performed 4 songs and everyone who attended played brilliantly.  The response from the other teams was excellent and the general opinion was Clifton played extremely well and it was good to see them return to the Grassington Rally.

New Website

The Clifton Website has had a slight redesign both at the front end and the back end.  The new design and server has come about because some website companies don’t know what a decent price for web hosting is!  The new site also gives us the “room to grow” we require and newer improvements will be added soon.
