As the new Honorary Guild treasurer, I would like to introduce myself with a brief paragraph.
I learnt to ring many years ago in Devon but, like a lot of ringers, had a ‘break’ when other things seemed to get in the way. However, I resumed ringing when I came to live in Burghclere, near Newbury, and have been tower captain there, as well as Treasurer for the Andover District, for the last few years. I would describe my ringing as more ‘Sunday service’ than ‘peal board’ but like to think that ringers of all abilities can play their part in the Guild community.
As a retired chartered accountant, I have been encouraged to take on the role of Guild Treasurer as Mike Bubb steps down after a fantastic 30 years in the post. I know I have a very hard act to follow, but trust that members will bear with me while I get to grips with the job.
