Tower Captain at Arreton, Paul Wise, has decided after many years of hard work, to resign from the post of tower captain.
There are no members of the team able or willing to take on the task so this leaves ringing at the tower in a state of flux for the moment.
There will be practices tonight and for the next two weeks but after that the issue is less clear. The district will need to decide who will be contact for visitors etc. so would currently suggest any contact should be directed through our District Secretary, Mary Tester.
As further details emerge or are resolved I will try to keep you all up to speed with developments.
Mary Tester’s details are currently available on the District webpage.
To reiterate, the last practice under Paul’s direction will take place on Monday, 12th February. Hopefully we shall have news about how a resolution can be achieved before that. I will post news on the Arreton webpage as things develop.
There is our Annual District Meeting on Saturday, 17th February, so I’m guessing this topic will be high on the Agenda.
Paul, and his other half, Joyce, have worked long and hard to keep Arreton as a ringing tower and a great debt of appreciation and gratitude is due to them both.
