A Happy New Year to all the Guild’s ringers!
We hope you have all enjoyed a good Christmas and are looking forward to plenty of ringing in 2017. Whilst we are not even into the New Year, the Education Committee is already working on courses for the early part of 2017; like the Windmill Theatre during the last war “we never close”!! With this in mind, I attach a poster and an application form (both Word and pdf versions) for an Education Morning on Raising and Lowering in Peal, to be held at Bishopstoke on Saturday 11 February 2017. Rest assured, if you have an Annual District Meeting on that day you can do both; the Education Morning will finish at 12.00 noon, allowing ringers plenty for time to get some lunch before their ADM in the afternoon.
Early as it is, the details have been sent out because the closing date is at the end of January – not very long. If this is of interest to you, or if you have friends within your tower whom you think it might help, do please have a think about it.
As always, we are very grateful to anybody who could offer their services as a helper for that morning. If you are not already on our list but would like to help (you don’t have to volunteer for every course), please contact Sallie Ingram . The Education Committee is very grateful indeed to anybody who can spare a day, or even half a day, to help those who are endeavouring to further their knowledge and experience.
Thank you all very much – we look forward to seeing you during 2017.
