It is a real pleasure to welcome Tim Sunter on board the ART Management Committee.
Tim has spent most of his career in education as a secondary and Further Education maths lecturer. He spent 21 years as an elected councillor on Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council, including five as leader. Tim has served on the governing bodies of several colleges, Dudley Training and Enterprise Council and the Black Country Learning and Skills Council. He has a masters degree in Education Management and Leadership and has been a visiting lecturer at the Institute of Local Government Studies at the University of Birmingham.
In 2014 Tim responded to a tweet commenting on the lack of ringing at his local tower, St Michael's and All Angels, Brierley Hill and signed up to the Birmingham School of Bell Ringing. He graduated with his Learning the Ropes level 5 certificate in 2017 - shortly after achieving, with his wife Jenny, the goal of restarting ringing at Brierley Hill. Tim went on to completing his Module 1 and Module 2 training and is now working hard on developing the local band.
If you would like to come and help us with our Committee work or have other skills you would like to offer, please let us know. There is much to do and we continue to look for people to help us.
