Michael learnt to ring after getting hooked on a day trip to Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin with his Granny, Jean Jeffery (also a member of the Society) in 2004, and became a member of the band at St Donard's, Belfast. During this time Michael served in various posts including Assistant and Master for the Northern District of the IACR.
Michael joined the Society in January 2008 while still living in Northern Ireland and would regularly attend country meetings and other Society events. After moving to London in 2010, Michael started ringing regularly with the Society and got involved mainly in peal ringing.
When not in the tower, Michael works as a Civil Servant by day and can be found in many of London's refreshment establishments by night.

What does the Senior Steward do?
The Senior Steward is involved in the ringing side of the Society, being a regular attender of London practices where they help ensure things run smoothly (not least by booking all the towers!) and deputise for the Master. The Senior steward undertakes ad-hoc organising of peals and gets involved with events like NTDD. Other ringing related tasks often fall to the Senior Steward, such as organising special practices and peals.
