Hopefully we’ll all be able to enjoy some ringing over this special weekend.
PLEASE LET ME KNOW OF YOUR RINGING ACTIVITIES and ACHIEVIEMENTS for potential inclusion in a PRESS RELEASE!
We hear how much ringing is missed by our communities when towers cannot ring for whatever reason. It would be good to reach out again and remind folk that we are still here for them. It would be great to build on the wonderful recruitment ‘green shoots’ we are seeing across the Guild this year so, it is my hope to issue another Guild Press Release in the next few weeks.
We have some special opportunities coming up to showcase our ringing:
|17 April||Easter Sunday|
|21 April||Queen Elizabeth’s (actual) birthday|
|23 April||St. George’s Day Patron Saint of England|
|18 May||St. Dunstan’s Day. Patron Saint of Bell Ringers,|
