Channel Island Ringing Centre – Renamed

Alderney ringers took advantage of counting the wife of the President of Alderney amongst their number, to seek the blessing of the First Couple of Alderney on the name change of the Channel Islands’ Ringing Centre.

There has been some debate over the choice of the original name of this facility, almost from the first and the ringers of Alderney held a competition to rename it in March. This was won by veteran ringer Maurice Stupart, who wished to dedicate it to the tower with the longest tradition of excellence in the Channel Islands, S. Michael du Valle in Guernsey.

So it with great pride that 15 ringers turned out this morning to listen to Stuart Trought, President of Alderney, formally open the renamed S. Michael du Valle Ringing Centre, in Longis Bay, Alderney.
