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.
