Just a reminder ……. the Education Committee’s all-day course on Grandsire Doubles and Triples takes place on Saturday 4th March, based at Shedfield. The closing date for the receipt of applications is 16th February – only ten days away – and there are only a few places left. Places are filled on a “first come first served” basis so, if you have been thinking about this, it would be an idea to get your application in as quickly as possible. (The Raising and Lowering in Peal morning, for example, filled up well before the closing date and has a waiting list!).
If there are others in your tower who have also been thinking about this, or who you think would enjoy the day and benefit from it – please give them a nudge. I’m more than happy to help with any queries, either by email or by ‘phone 01962 886939.
Best wishes – Christine
- Guild Education Day – Grandsire Doubles and Triples – Saturday 4th March, based at Shedfield
The next full Education Day. This will be on Saturday 4th March, based at Shedfield Reading Room, to study Grandsire Doubles and Grandsire Triples. Posters and application forms (both Word and pdf versions) are below. Details have already been sent out to your District Secretaries for onward transmission to your towers as the closing date for the receipt of applications is 16th February. As always, the day will be a mixture of theory and practical ringing.
If you haven’t been to an Education Day before – rest assured these are relaxed days when you will never be pushed into doing anything for which you are not ready; each student is an individual with different experience and different needs, and our aim is to give you help at exactly the level you need; in fact, you will probably learn a huge amount by chatting with the other students over a pub lunch, and find they have the same queries that you have been frightened to raise!!
At the same time, if it is appropriate, you might like to think about the “Raising and Lowering in Peal” morning at Bishopstoke on 11th February. Places are filling up and the closing date (28th January) is only 2½ weeks away. If you have an Annual District Meeting on that day, our training session will finish sharp at 12.00 noon so you will have plenty of time for lunch before going off to your meeting.
We hope to have a member of the Education Committee at as many ADMs as possible to talk about Education Days and to answer any questions, and I am always on the end of the phone or email to help with any queries.
If this reaches any ringers with a little more experience who feel they can help on either of these days – and even a half day is very much appreciated – do please contact Sallie Ingram Remember, we have all been learners in the past …….!
