***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.

The Guild Education Committee


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

No Places left on Stedman Triples Course

Just a reminder about the Guild Education Committee’s full-day course on Stedman Triples, on Saturday 4th November, based at Milford on Sea.   A number or places have been filled but we still have a few places left and the closing date creeps ever closer.    If this is of interest to you, or if there are colleagues within your tower whom you think would find this interesting and of value to them, perhaps you would give them a gentle nudge to get their applications in a.s.a.p.    A whole day concentrating on just one method may be just what you need!

I have attached the details (both Word and pdf versions) for the Education Committee’s final full-day course for 2017, which will be STEDMAN TRIPLES on Saturday 4th November, based at Milford-on-Sea.

There are a limited number of places available so that we can ensure each student has as much concentrated tuition and back-up as possible. If you think this would appeal to you, or if you have fellow-ringers within your tower whom you think might enjoy this, then do please give it some consideration, pass the details around, and get your applications in; the closing date for the receipt of these is 19th October.

As always – any queries, let me know.

Many thanks.

Young Ringers Planning another “Lilliput Week”

Following the success of the week the Young Ringers’ Facebook Group spend in Poole last year, at the Lilliput Scout Hut, ringing around Dorset, they are planning to come for 5 days this year, the 1st to the 5th of August.

Details of towers, timings etc will be confirmed nearer to the day. Meanwhile, put the dates in your diary.

Last year, 4 or 5 young members of our Guild joined in for all or part of the week, and they (and they adults who provided their transport) thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The video below gives an idea….

Reporting from the C&S Youth Practice – Feb 2016

Brockenhurst St Nicholas This afternoon’s Youth Practice at Brockenhurst was once again very successful. We have a pretty healthy number of young ringers across the District to draw from now, and despite the fact that not everyone can attend every one, numbers remain strong.

Ringing Master Sallie Ingram once again encouraged everyone to strike as carefully as they could, and as all those who are attending are making significant improvements over time, she has decided the time has come to enter a Youth Band in the Hartless Shield* this time around – this suggestion went down very well!

Rounds and Call changes were interspersed with Grandsire Doubles (called by Hannah), Grandsire Triples (with both Luke and Nicola ringing inside) and Stedman Doubles (which Nicola has worked on very hard recently during visits to Hordle).  Not to mention hand made chocolate cookies and a bit of Plain Bob Triples on a smart phone…. the Ringing Down in Peal was a little bit creative – a reminder that people who have to leave practice nights before 9pm may not get enough practice at this important skill!

The towers represented were Brockenhurst, Hordle, Christchurch Priory and Milford on Sea.

Thanks once again to Julie for hosting the event at Brockenhurst. The light eight is ideal for the age range who ring (currently about 7 to 18) and there is plenty of space for any pre-ringers who come to ramble about safely away from the moving ropes!

  • Next Youth Practice: Saturday 9th April 5.30pm at Brockenhurst
  • Hartless Shield:  Saturday 5th March 2.30pm at Fawley

Practice Report – CS District Youth Practice

The good thing about having our Youth practices each holiday, is there’s a bit less pressure on our time. The downside is  a couple of the regular attenders were on holiday. However, the 8 young ringers present included 3 new faces and 4 towers were represented.

Once again, Ringing Master Sallie Ingram (Milford) juggled different skill levels from rounds, call changes to Grandsire Doubles, and the highlight was probably the “Fast Call Changes” with only one over-18 ringing….. fast really did mean fast, sometimes with 2 changes called for the same row!

For young learners who ring heavy bells at home, we started with a session on Ringing Up – for some this was their first successful attempt and they were delighted at how manageable they found the bells! Once on to Rounds, the newcomers quickly got the feel for the fast ringing, and the need to pull gently, and all had plant of turns and enjoyed the practice.

Thanks once more to our hosts at Brockenhurst – next year’s 6 practices are scheduled to take place there as it is ideal.
