Many of you have asked when we will be running another Belfry Maintenance course – here is your answer! The Education Committee’s final course of this year, which will run alongside the Plain Hunt course on Saturday 23 November, will be Belfry Maintenance, also based at Hawkley.
The tutor will be Roger Barber who has a wealth of experience and has run this course for us before, and whilst it will be based at Hawkley, Roger will take students to two different towers during the day for a closer look at different types of fittings (and much more), giving students the chance to ask questions about these and their own towers. It will cover many aspects, showing the basic things which need to be checked, ropes, stays, bolts, and much more. If you are a steeple keeper who, perhaps, has been thrown in at the deep end because nobody else will do it (!), or if you just help out occasionally, you may find this a helpful day.
I have attached below the poster and application form (both Word and pdf versions) but if there are any queries I’ll do my best to help, as, of course, will Roger.
