Association of Ringing Teachers/ART Training Scheme: Course places available.

Two great minds (Alan Bentley and Tim Kettle) have been at work together to host this great opportunity within the C&S District: A one day course (Module 1) Teaching Bell Handling.  This will be held at St. Peter’s, Bournemouth on 9th March 2019 with tutor Gill Hughes. In time we plan to host more in the undercroft conference centre.

St. Peter’s has great facilities within its undercrofts, and in time we hope will become known on the ringers-map as a ‘Learning/Ringing Centre’, as the church invests in making the staircase, tower, steeple, bells more accessible to the public and awareness.  We are very lucky to home a beautiful heavy ring of 8 by Taylor’s (21cwt in E), recast as a complete set in the 1930’s. The tower is also home to the popular and successful weekly tailored practice night specifically geared towards bell handling.

For more information please contact Tim Kettle, Ringing Master of St. Peter’s.

***UPDATED***Guild Education Day – Cambridge Surprise Major – Sat 9th March at Milford-on-Sea

Places are filling up for the Education Committee’s day on Cambridge Surprise Major, 9th March based at Milford-on-Sea.   If any of you are thinking about this, could I just remind you that the closing date for application is creeping up and you need to get your form and payment to me sooner rather than later. Closing date is Tuesday 21st February.

I am attaching the poster and application form (both Word and pdf versions) again in case the originals got accidentally recycled with the Christmas wrappings!

Any queries – do please get in touch.

A Happy New Year to all our ringers!   We hope all your towers enjoyed a good Christmas and – like the Guild Education Committee – are looking forward to plenty of ringing in 2019.

To this end, we are attaching the poster and application form (both Word and pdf versions) for the first of our Education Days.   This will be on Saturday 9th March when we will be covering Cambridge Surprise Major, based at Milford-on-Sea.

With lots of very welcome new ringers within our towers following Ringing Remembers, we will be covering some of the basic subjects as the coming year unfolds, but, first off, we hope Cambridge Surprise Major will appeal to the slightly more experienced ringers who are looking for a challenge.    If you think this is something you would enjoy, or if there are others within your tower who would like to join in, do please get in touch.

As always if you have any queries do please email me or phone 01962 886939 and I’ll do my best to help, or I’ll “find a man who can”!

 

Best wishes
