Ringing Masters Report 2015
This year we started monthly practices instead of having quarterly meetings. We have had a specific method for each practice plus rounds and call changes upwards to accommodate everybody that attends, I hope everybody that has attended has enjoyed and got out of the practices what they needed. The coming year will continue with these practices once a month, if you have a particular special method requirement for these practices please let me or Liz know.
We again entered a band in the Guild 8 bell striking comp. at Shedfield with a very good piece of Grandsire Triples which put us in 2nd place.
I will be looking to put a band together for the Guild 8 bell again this year which takes place on the Guild AGM day.
If any of the towers in the district have any training needs please let me know and I will try and organise helpers to come along to help out. This year I had one request from Minstead ringers to learn Stedman Doubles some from scratch and some to re-enforce the method. Polly then organised some back up practices on Wednesday mornings and the learners are progressing well.
The district has other specific practices during each month – a surprise major, doubles and minor. If you have not tried any of these please fill free to attend and I am sure you will get a good welcome.
I hope you all will enjoy your ringing in the coming year.
