The Inn Ringers were back in action on 12th June with their first full concert in more than two and a half years. The concert was a sell out and raised £650 for their chosen charity for this year, the Macari Foundation - the Stoke-on-Trent based organisation set up to help the homeless people of the city. It was attended by the founder of the charity Lou Macari the former manager of Stoke City football club.
The Inn Ringers are now back to their regular Monday evening rehearsal sessions. During the last couple of months they have welcomed four new ringers and are now looking forward to putting together a concert programme for their charity concert in June.
The Inn Ringers got back to their practice sessions in Mid August. After some 73 weeks away from their regular Monday night ringing sessions the team returned. Being low in numbers the team undertook some publicity activites in order to generate an bit of interest in the team and hopefully gain some new recruits. Articles appeared on the web site 'a little bit of Stone' and in the local magazine 'The Stone Gazette'. As a result of this publicity the team have welcomed three new ringers and a former ringer has returned.
There will be no annual Christmas concert this year, instead the team are organising a Christmas get together for family, friends and other local ringers.
The team will be back in action next year and hope to stage their annual charity concert in May 2022!!
The Inn Ringers have not been able to get together to practise since 9th March due to the actions being taken in relation to Covid-19. The team are disappointed to announce their Annual Christmas Concert has now had to be cancelled,
The team are hoping to be back in their rehearsal room in the not too distant future and that it won't be too long before they are entertaining their audiences again,
