The course was started by Wilf Moreton. He had been involved with some of the very earliest ringing courses, and saw the need for more. With help from Austin Wingate and George Cousins, he set up and ran the early Hereford Courses.
The current organising team is largely made up of members of the Moreton family. Adrian is the chief administrator, assisted by Alison (secretary and webmaster), Ralph and Frances. On the ground in Hereford the chief organiser of towers is Nick Cooper-Tomkins, and Stuart Piper arranges local helpers from Herefordshire and Worcestershire.
