Cleveland and North Yorkshire

Welcome to The Cleveland and North Yorkshire Branch pages. The Branch covers a wide geographical area, from Hurworth in the north to Aldborough in the south and from Askrigg in the west to Saltburn in the east. The branch borders the Durham and Newcastle Association to the north and the Leeds, Scarborough, Western and York Branches to the south, east and west.

The Branch is formed in part out of the old 'Cleveland and North Yorkshire Ringers Association' and is semi-rural in nature. The geography and history of the branch mean that Branch committee acts as a 'facilitator' of ringing within the Branch rather than a 'provider.' In practice, this means that there are only 2 'official' branch events per year, the Branch AGM and Striking Competition but members are able to organise events in therir local area, with the support of the branch and advertised with the help of the branch.(For example: Training events)

We have a quarterly newsletter, mailing list and Facebook page

Get in touch to be added to the mailing list.
