C&S Annual District Meeting with Practice. Christchurch Priory. Saturday 26th January 2019 from 2:00pm onwards.

Dear fellow ringers far and wide,

Happy New Year to all!

Now we are heading into the middle of January, it can only mean one thing, that it is once again time for our annual district meeting day/service/tea/practice. This year we meet at Christchurch Priory, method of the month for January is Little Bob Royal & Little Bob Maximus, however all are welcome for rounds and call changes, plain hunt, and any other methods.  Please let Rosemary Rogers know if you plan to attend for catering numbers. (link below).

For your information:

Whilst you are emailing Rosemary, please also save the date and submit your menu choices for the district dinner (menu in links below) in February.  It’s just after St. Valentine’s, so NO excuses.  Last year was a great laugh, very good value, and the Chicken with Wild Mushroom Pie sounds extremely tasty!

At the meeting; I’m hoping to lose the ‘acting’ webmaster bit of my voluntary job title.  I am also looking forward to accompanying the service on the Priory Lady Chapel box organ (not the mighty beast in the cases in transepts and scattered through the triforiums, as I may have had a small heart attack operating that console!).

More importantly now, we are still looking for somebody to organise the raffle to help raise funds to send the district youth team up to Liverpool for the ringing competition.  Please let Sallie know asap if you can help with the raffle, and of course we shall need donations of prizes.  I’m sure we all have something lurking in a cupboard from Great Auntie Mildred.

The district calendar is certainly packed with lots for everybody, with interesting education days.  Don’t forget, amongst all these, you can also weave in the regular monthly district practices aimed at polishing and honing specific skills.  Please do support these where possible, as they are excellent evenings.  We are so very lucky to have such a busy ringing calendar available to us.  In September I am organising a skittles night at a pub/skittles alley, so please watch out for more information.

This rest of this post is to serve as a ‘muster point’, for all the information you will require on the day, and schedule of the day’s runnings.  Please do print off the documents you require from the links provided below.  If anybody is struggling with printing, I can bring copies if you let me know in advance.

(For those who are not au fait with downloading, in essence:

Ringing 2:00pm until 4:00pm

Service 4:00pm until 4:45pm

Tea & ADM 4:45pm onwards

Evening ringing 6:30pm until 8:00pm)

If there are any questions, or if I have missed something, please let one of the team know.

Happy ringing until then,

all best wishes,

Peter Murdock-Saint-Acting District Webmaster

ART Module 1 – New Alresford – Sat 26th January 2019 – 9.30am-5.00pm

The Ringing Remembers campaign has resulted in many people coming forward to learn to ring, but with the current profile of the ringing population, we need to continuously recruit and train more new ringers. Many people end up teaching because there is no-one else in their tower prepared to do it, and they have little or no training or support. Founded seven years ago to address this issue, the Association of Ringing Teachers (ART) has grown rapidly. More than 2,600 people have now attended one of the ART Teacher Training Scheme modules.

Working with the Guild Education Committee, there will be an ART Module 1 day course (teaching bell handling) at St John, New Alresford on Saturday 26th January 2019 – 9.30 till 5.00pm.

This module is designed to help teachers deliver the Learning the Ropes scheme to new ringers, and is open to people who have sufficiently good bell control to inspire confidence in others, whether they have taught someone to handle before, or not. To book a place visit: https://smartringer.org/m1dc/26673/
