Sending Emails

Sending an email to CIBells is simple, but you will need to request “access to post” first. This is available to any ringer on request. Please just email me at p (at) peterbevis.com.


All users registered to date (APRIL 2019) already have access to post.

Requiring you to access simply prevents the ever-present spam bots from posting porn and worse:  Once you have access – say what you want to publish and email it to [email protected]   Please remember that the world can then read it – so be considerate and accurate.

The email subject is used as your post’s title. The body is the post’s contents. A few minutes after receiving your email, you should receive a notification email informing you of the published post’s details.

Mail Formatting

Your email can be plain text or formatted. As much formatting as possible will be retained, although the Post by Email system will strip unnecessary HTML tags so that your email is displayed correctly. Note that you will need to use an email client that supports rich text or HTML formatting in order to make use of this feature. Most website based clients (Hotmail, Gmail) do support this, as do most desktop clients (Outlook, Mail). You may need to switch your client into rich text or formatted mode.

Ringing master report 2020

Ringing master report 2020

It was nice to hear how bands were practicing St Simon’s on various numbers of bells in preparation for the April District Meeting and Striking Competition. Unfortunately this year has been extraordinary and not in a good way. Guernsey and Alderney are very fortunate to have been able to return to ringing as normal for a long time now whilst our friends in Jersey and the UK face tight restrictions on how long and how often they can ring.
Our focus has to be first and foremost on keeping our bands together. Whilst we come together to ring we also come together as a community that has to look out for each other.
Moving forwards we are preparing to join the Salisbury Diocesan Guild of Ringers and whilst we can’t get stuck in with them socially and in the tower straight away I hope we can make a conserved effort as a branch (as we will soon be re-titled) to attend Guild events and forge new bonds of friendship. Saying that, we leave the W&P on good terms and whilst we are moving to Salisbury we need not say goodbye to the W&P nor the long standing friendships and connections we have made over the past 35ish years.
Despite the disruption of lockdown we have had a productive year with over 100 quarter peals rung in the district and over 50 containing some sort of first including first quarter and first as conductor as well as many many first in method / variations. Sunday service ringing continues at all towers as well as extra service ringing and other events on top of weddings and funerals. All this shows we are an active, dynamic, learning and progress focused district and it is a credit to all of us, those who are learning, those who are supporting, those who are organising and those who are turning out week by week to ring for all these various reasons. All I ask is please don’t stop, keep pushing yourselves, keep supporting each other and above all keep enjoying your ringing.

The Channel Islands Pirates

The Channel Islands Pirates will be taking part in competition in York July 4th:-)

27 teams have entered but the organisers have split them into method ringing and call changes teams so all 27 teams can enter (there had been the threat of a ballot if more than 24 teams entered)

We will be a method team, probably Bob Triples.

40 yrs ago

40 years ago Peter & I rang our first qtr peal. We rang it together, I had the treble as I could see it (but not hear it) & Peter rang the tenor as he could hear it but couldn’t see it:-(

We couldn’t let this anniversary slide by even though we were in Tulloch and half the band was away, so we resorted to handbells:

It was good fun:-)

Moving the ADM – Sept 19th 2020 ADM to be held on Guernsey

The Alderney band – faced with the reality that Jersey will be unable to join us in Sept 2020 for the ADM if we retain the opportunity to host the meeting – surrender that option.
We are most anxious that any reference to ‘moving the venue to another island’ is couched in terms which reflect our surrendering the option is NOT because we don’t want to/can’t host it but because we want to give every island the best chance of attending.
This is to be considered a one-off surrendering, we fervently hope that present inter-island travel difficulties will not persist too far into the future.

Ay youngsters go to Jsy

Alderney young ringers – Aaron & Olo – enjoyed a tremendous weekend of ringing, zipwire, cinema and pizza on Jersey Nov 23/24th. Having an opportunity to ring on different bells & with other Young Ringers was a tremendously valuable experience. We were extremely grateful to Justin & Louise for all the arrangemnets and to them, Peter & Jo and Richard for accommodating us all. Helen & Aileen
