It is believed Patsy met her husband, Clive, for the first time in the ringing room at Sacred Trinity in the 1960's whilst both were studying at university in Manchester. Clive has been a stalwart of the local band at Cheadle for many years. The ringers of 2, 3, 4, 5 and 8 are members of the Cheadle band and the ringers of 3, 4, 5, 6 are members of MUGCR.
