When Alderney augmented their 6 bells to 12 in the autumn of 2013 they became the last of the 3 islands to have at least one tower capable of practicing triples and major. The Inter-Island 8 bell competition was born.
Not only did Alderney have new bells but St Anne’s now boasted a new frame too. An Alderney craftsman was able to turn part of the old oak frame into a magnificent carved bell to be the trophy for the new competition. Long time stalwart of Jersey ringing – Jack Worrall – had recently passed away and with his family’s permission the new trophy was named in his honour.
A set piece is chosen by the committee every autumn to be competed for in the following spring.
The trophy has been won:
|2015||Plain Bob Major||Jersey|
|2017||Plain Bob Major||Jersey|
|2019||Little bob Major||Alderney|
|2020||Cancelled due to Covid-19|
