Thank you from Stockbridge!

To mark our move into the Winchester District a training morning was held at Stockbridge yesterday morning (Saturday 22nd June).

We were really happy to welcome learners from nearby towers, but special thanks must go to Ringing Masters Jenny Watson and Edmund Wratten, together with Bruce Purvis and his kind helpers from Winchester – Charlie and Colin, and Jen Churchill from Lockerley who were all amazingly patient and encouraging as they led us through our journey into Reverse Canterbury Doubles.

We had a brilliant morning – thank you all. PS. If I’ve missed out any of the helpers – sorry and thank you too!

Winchester District Practice at Wonston – Sat 15th June – 10:00 – 11:30am

Dear All,

We have – for anyone not planning to attend the Guild AGM on the Isle of Wight this Saturday – a District practice at Wonston.  Or, if you are just intending to visit the Island for the tea and meeting, and have the morning free, what better way to spend the morning than to support the District Practice? – 10.00 start.

ART Module 2F courses in W&P – Sept/Nov 2019

Taking your ringers from rounds to plain hunt in easily manageable steps

ART Module 2

Many of those who responded to the recent Guild Education Committee survey talked about the difficulties of helping their ringers progress from ringing rounds through to ringing the treble to methods. This is one of the most challenging stages as the new ringer is ‘multi-tasking’ trying to acquire a number of new skills, all at the same time – listening and accurate striking, counting their place, varying the speed of the bell (the three speeds of ringing), ringing with an open handstroke lead, and acquiring ropesight. This is not easy, especially if you only have a limited number of experienced ringers in your band.

To help, we are offering a choice of two separate one day courses in the W&P area this autumn. These introduce teachers and tower captains to a range of exercises to try with an inexperienced band. The exercises are designed to develop each individual skill and ensure a smooth transition into ringing methods

  • Sat 28th September 2019    Bournemouth, St Peter
  • Sat 2nd November 2019       New Alresford, St John

The September course will be delivered by David Smith who writes the Education Column in the Ringing World, and Roger Booth. The courses will use material developed by the Association of Ringing Teachers (Course code M2F). You do not need to have attended a previous ART module to attend. The ART modules can be taken in any order. The modules are designed to help teachers deliver the Learning the Ropes scheme.

Joining the course

There is no compulsion to attend this course – there are many experienced teachers out there, and all are free to continue to teach. However even the most experienced teachers have found the course valuable in terms of introducing themselves to new ideas, and sharing their experience with others, especially if they learnt a long time ago! Much of the Learning the Ropes material is freely available to all, but to give your pupils access to the on-line content, issue (free) progress certificates, receive discounts on publications and for access to on-line teacher support material etc., you need to have attended one of the modules to learn about delivering the scheme.

After the course we will group teachers together in local groups or ‘hubs’ for mutual support and set up a series of ‘foundation skills’ practices where attendees can practice teaching using the exercises introduced. To find out more visit: http://ringingteachers.org/about/art-training-scheme

To book a place, visit: https://smartringer.org/public/daycourses/

Members of the Winchester & Portsmouth Guild may reclaim ART course fees up to £20 from the Guild’s Training and Development Fund (subject to availability of funds).  Applications should be made to the Guild Treasurer via the Guild’s website, https://wpbells.org/

Election of Guild Officers – YOUR GUILD NEEDS YOU!

Dear all

The election of Guild officers takes place on 15th June at the AGM in the I.O.W.
We have received nominations for some of the posts but we urgently need you to consider whether you would be able to, or know someone who would be willing to be nominated for the following posts:
  • Hon. Gen. Treasurer
  • Public Relations Officer
  • Central Council Representative (s)
For information, the Hon. Gen. Treasurer will also be a trustee of the Bell Restoration Fund which has meetings just prior to the Exec Meetings.  The Guild cannot continue to function without a Treasurer so it is vital that we have nominations for this post.
Please give this some urgent thought.  If you are interested or want to nominate someone for any of these posts then please let me know by email ASAP.  You do not have to be at the AGM to do this.
Please note that it is also still possible to nominate someone or be nominated yourself for ANY of the Guild Officer posts.

Winchester District Training morning – Sat 22nd June, 9.30-11.30am at Stockbridge.

Dear All,

Please find attached the poster for the next Winchester District training morning, 9.30-11.30 on Saturday June 22nd.

Plain Bob Doubles, and its variant based on making places instead of dodging, Reverse Canterbury, are the foundation of almost everything we do in change-ringing, so once you can plain hunt these two methods are your essential next steps.

Hope to see lots of people at Stockbridge on the 22nd. Do be sure to let Jenny Watson know if you wish to come along to learn or to help.

Best wishes

2019 Guild Sweatshirts and Polo Shirts

A huge thank-you to everybody who bought new sweatshirts and polo shirts bearing the Guild logo earlier this year; in all, there were nearly 70 items and, even keeping to 2016 prices, this resulted in an unexpected surplus going into Guild funds.

What a wonderful advertisement this is for our Guild, and nowhere was this more apparent than at Winchester Cathedral on 19th May. With those attending the WW1 Evensong, and those who helped outside all day on the Charmborough Ring, it was fantastic to see so many Guild logos as well as District and individual Tower logos on display, proclaiming our pride in our art.

One of our Guild ringers inadvertently ordered himself a Guild sweatshirt instead of the polo shirt he really wanted. Does anybody have a new polo shirt, XL, preferably Royal Blue, which they would be prepared to swap for a sweatshirt, XL, also Royal Blue? Or do you have one which, having ordered it, you now find you don’t need? If so, please get in touch with me.

Practice and Sunday ringing cancellations at Curdridge and Botley

There will be no practice at Curdridge next Monday, 27th May, as it is a Bank Holiday. We shall also not practice the following Monday, 3rd June, but go to the District practice at Fareham instead.

There will be no practice at Botley on Thursday 30th May as there is an Ascension Day service in the church.

There will be no Sunday service ringing at either Botley or Curdridge on Sunday 9th June, as both services have been cancelled for the Diocesan Prayer Picnic at Portchester Castle.

Winchester District Practice – Thursday 21st March – Tichborne

Dear All,
Please find attached Word and PDF versions of the poster for our next District Practice, which is at Tichborne, next Thursday, 21st March.
This is a practice with a bit of a difference, as there are no local ringers (apart from when the Cheriton ringers come over as needed), so this is an opportunity to (1) try somewhere new (2) try something new (depending what we feel like doing).
The Tichborne bells have (relatively) recently undergone some restoration, so they go better than they did. The church is of great interest for ecclesiology buffs, as it incorporates a Catholic chapel – one of only three in England to survive from before the Reformation. Also handy is the Tichborne Arms, a free house, so with Pots and Flack Manor (to name but two) on tap.
Craig, great opportunity for you! Can you put the word round to any of your list (eg Janet?) who might feel like coming along?
Best wishes to all,

ADOPTION OF NEW FRAMEWORK FOR METHOD RINGING

ADOPTION OF NEW FRAMEWORK FOR METHOD RINGING

Dear Association Secretary,

As you may recall, CRAG’s Proposal H, which was passed at the May 2017 Central Council meeting, called for the Decisions of the Council to be replaced with a simple, permissive and descriptive framework for ringing with only the minimal detail required to maintain the historical record.

After 16 months of intensive work, involving two major consultation exercises, the Framework Team led by Tim Barnes delivered version 1 of the Framework to the Executive in January 2019.  The Framework has since been reviewed by members of the Executive over the past four weeks, with questions and comments satisfactorily addressed by the Framework Team. At their monthly meeting on Sunday February 24th 2019, the Executive voted to adopt and implement the Framework.

Here are some explanatory notes to accompany this decision and announcement:

1.              Permissive and Descriptive

1.1.        The Framework will take its place in the Council’s rulebook as a “standard”, which is a form of policy as defined in Council rule 10.4, and will be maintained by the Technical & Taxonomy Workgroup under the supervision of the Executive as stated in CRAG’s Proposal H and under Council rules.

1.2.        It is important to note that the Framework fulfils the objectives set out in CRAG’s Proposal H that it should be a permissive document, which is not over-prescriptive, but instead describes in simple language the norms and understandings which are common to almost all method ringing performed around the world.  It will inform and govern the Council’s various collections and records (e.g. methods, record lengths, extension processes), including how things are recorded, classified, analysed and reported.

2.              Magnum Opus

2.1.        In addition to the Framework, there is also supporting material comprising examples, further explanations, technical comments and appendices. The supporting material is not part of the Framework itself, but assists in the understanding of the Framework, expands upon certain definitions and requirements, and further assists ringers in communicating about method ringing. The supporting material will be updated by the Council’s Executive when the need arises.

2.2.        The Framework, appendices and supporting material are combined in a single website at https://framework.cccbr.org.uk. PDF versions of the Framework and appendices can be downloaded from this link (ref section 1.B). The rest of the supporting material can be accessed through the website.

3.              Consultative and transparent

3.1.        Two ringing community consultations have been completed on the Framework. Over 40 ringers participated in the consultations, raising over 130 points between them. This feedback resulted in the team making around 60 improvements to the Framework. The consultations were widely publicised, including in the RW, on ringers’ email lists, on Facebook and Twitter, on the CC website, and by communication to all CC members and to all CC-affiliated societies. The live draft of the Framework has been publicly available on the Internet since October 2017, and the team published four articles in the RW explaining the Framework development. In addition, The Ringing World has recently been serializing the FAQs from the Framework website.  This process has been an intensive exercise not only for the members of the Framework Team, but also for those ringers who have devoted many hours reviewing the various versions as they have been produced.

3.2.        In short, the development of the new Framework has been undertaken with full transparency and consultation. Consultation submissions and the team’s responses can be found in Appendix I (FAQs).

4.              Implementation

4.1.        Council rule 10.8 calls for new policies and standing orders to take effect no earlier than three months from the date of notice. We therefore give notice that our decision to implement the Framework takes effect on June 1st 2019. The Framework directly replaces Decisions D, E, F, G, I and J.

4.2.        We also give notice of our decision to retire the remaining (“non-method”) Decisions A, B, C, H and K, with effect from June 1st 2019. This is in accord with the Council’s wishes as expressed in votes at the 2017 Edinburgh meeting and the 2018 Lancaster meeting.  The Executive have reviewed these “non-method” decisions and where possible consulted those responsible for them to confirm that they may be safely retired.  We are satisfied that their purposes are achieved by the Council’s current objects and rulebook, although in the case of Decision H (Ringing Alliances) we will be writing to those few organisations with whom alliances have been formed to emphasise that the Council will continue to nurture these relationships and seek new ones.  The latter Decisions may be replaced in due course by new Council policies if needed.

4.3.        The version of the Framework which will be implemented on 1st June is version 1.  The Framework Team have intentionally left some things to consider in subsequent versions, since trying to do everything in one go would have taken too long. For example, the Framework’s method extension requirements largely follow the current Decisions, but this is an area where more analysis may lead to improvements and simplification. Timing for a second version has not yet been determined, but will likely follow between 6 and 12 months after version 1.

4.4.        The Framework Team will be ready to address any issues that arise in the implementation of version 1. While there’s been a good level of review in the consultations, it’s possible that notice of implementation may generate more scrutiny that uncovers something that has been overlooked. The Framework Team will be setting up an online forum that is open to all ringers to join, where ideas, issues, criticisms, etc can be raised. The Framework Team will use this input to inform future development of the Framework in what we expect to become a process of continuous improvement.  Comments can also be sent to this email address:   methods@cccbr.org.uk

 

5.              Day to day ringing

5.1.        A significant amount of effort has been devoted to ensure that the new Framework reflects ringing as it is currently performed, so the new Framework should have very little impact on day to day ringing.  Quarters or peals rung by the vast majority of ringers will be the same after 1st June as before.

5.2.        For the more technically adventurous, who enjoy pushing the boundaries of method construction or composition, the Framework will offer both guidance and support in a way which we hope will encourage rather than stifle innovation and so promote further advancement of the Exercise.

6.              In conclusion

6.1.        We know, after a century of debate over the Decisions, that there will never be a version of the Framework with which all ringers fully agree. However, we believe the new Framework will be acceptable to the vast majority of ringers. We also believe it meets, to the extent possible, the CRAG mandate of simple, permissive and descriptive while maintaining the historical record, and we hope the transition from a prescriptive approach to a descriptive one will largely eliminate controversy in this area in the future.

6.2.        The Executive wish to express their sincere thanks to the members of the Framework writing team. This first version of the Framework for Method Ringing represents countless hours of volunteer time, robust debate and careful deliberation of fundamental theoretical concepts.

6.3.        We ask you to communicate details of the new Framework and the web links set out above among your society.  If you or your members have any concerns or questions, please direct these to methods@cccbr.org.uk

I commend the Framework to you.

Have your say – Wed 17th April from 7.30pm – Winchester

The Guild Education Committee are holding an open event ‘Have your say’ on Wednesday 17th April (Holy Week) at 7.30pm in the Undercroft of Winchester Cathedral. The next decade will present many challenges and the object of the event is to consult with members, and all those with an interest in education to develop a strategy for the delivery of training by the Guild Education Committee into the 2020’s, and how this dovetails with the training provided at District and tower level. This work will also feed into the updating of the Guild’s three year action plan.

We particularly want to find out how we can help individual towers, how we can recruit and retain more young ringers, and how we can best support individuals who wish to make progress with their ringing. For this reason we are circulating tower correspondents with a short on-line survey to collect some information about the current state of ringing in towers. We can then present some statistics at the open meeting to aid discussion. The questionnaire asks about the ringing and the number of ringers present on a typical Sunday (3rd March) and at practice the following week.  Obviously the more towers that respond the better.

We intend to share the results of the survey on the Guild Website and Facebook Group before the meeting. On the night we will be sitting Guild/District officers, Tower Captains, new ringers (including Ringing Remembers recruits) and other ringers together in separate groups to discuss the findings, and report back, so no-one should feel inhibited. Everyone will have their say. We are particularly keen for newer ringers and young ringers to come along and do hope that at least some of the ringers from your tower will attend.

To give us an idea of numbers, please contact Christine Knights-Whittome,  before Monday 15th April.

Guild Education Evening – Wed 17th April – 7.30-9.30pm

And now for something different!

As is our usual practice, the Education Committee is offering a special evening during Holy Week – Wednesday 17 April – when traditionally many of our towers are silent.   This year we are inviting you to something new – have a look at the attached poster (both Word and pdf versions).   It is very important to us to find out what is going on in the towers across our Guild, and to hear  what you, the individual ringers, would like us to provide in the future – in particular we hope that lots of our newer and younger ringers will come along, to tell us what they want.

The evening is being spearheaded by Roger Booth at The Undercroft, Winchester Cathedral, and we very much hope that lots of you will come – in particular some of our newer and younger ringers who may well have plenty of new ideas.

We look forward to seeing you all on 17th April, and hope that you will bring with you any ringing friends who would like to join in.

As always – any queries, let me know.

Christine Knights-Whittome
