Dear District!

Following the poster that went out to tower contacts last week, here are all of the finalised details I have been busy working on.  If all goes to plan, looks to be a great trip, in an Area of Natural Beauty.  Historical towers for ringers, bygone trams and cream teas along the coast for those that join us that do not ring.

Please let me know names and numbers as soon as you can, plus your lunch choices.  There is a downloadable pdf pack below, so you can print of all, or the pages you need. Also screen grabs of the pdf for instantaneous ease of viewing if you’re going paperless!

I hope to see many of you there! All are welcome.

BEYOND BOB DOUBLES SOPLEY – Cancelled 04.09.19

Thank you all for your replies and we would just about have had enough ringers for a practice.  However, I’ve just learnt that the no.3 stay is still broken and to avoid any further problems have decided to cancel this month’s practice.
Let’s hope we’re all back from hols etc next month and the stay repaired and we can have a really good practice then.
All the best,
Tim
Previously…to be carried forward for October:
Another month passes by and the hoiday season is receding.
After our success last month with Grandsire Monor we’ll continue on a minor theme again this month, and I propose that we try full touches on Wednesday (we got a bob course last month).
We’ve been ringing Plain and Little Bob Minor recently, seperately, so we’ll try a little splicing of these methods.  Ross circulated some notes to the Bournemouth ringers and I hope he won’t mind me making use of his notes with our group. Please find them attached.
Again’ if anyone wants to call a touch of anything, please let me know.
Please lets me know Yes/No if you’ll be able to come along.
I look forward to hearing from you,
Tim
