Guild Education – Grandsire Doubles and Triples – Sat 6th April at Goodworth Clatford

With places filling up for the Cambridge Surprise Major course in March, the Education Committee is turning its attention to those whose current experience doesn’t stretch to that.   We are holding another full-day course on Grandsire Doubles and Triples, on Saturday 6 April, based at Goodworth Clatford.    There may be lots of new ringers who started early on in the Ringing Remembers campaign who may now be ready to think about Grandsire Doubles, and hopefully it will also appeal to “returning ringers” who need to brush up on past skills.   If in doubt, talk to your tower captain.


I have attached the poster and application form (both Word and pdf versions).   Places are filled on a “first come first served” basis so check your diaries now, as leaving everything until the closing date is not a good idea!

If you, or anybody else in your tower is interested, I am more than happy to answer any questions – email:  Christine or ‘phone 01962 886939.

**Places Filling Fast** Education Day Plain Hunt and Trebling 14th Oct

A quick reminder about the Guild Education Day on Saturday 14th October, based at Goodworth Clatford, when we will be covering Plain Hunt and Trebling to Doubles Methods.

In case you haven’t been able to get to your tower during the holiday season, I’m attaching further copies of the poster and application form (both Word and pdf) which will give you all the details.   You may perhaps know of ringers within your group who might enjoy the day and benefit from it, particularly as these are the building blocks for all methods in the future.   For anybody who has never been before, these are friendly days where ringers have the opportunity to learn in small groups with masses of experienced and dedicated help, and nobody is ever “thrown in at the deep end”.

October seems a long way off, but the closing date is just under two weeks away and places are filling fast …….. applications are dealt with on a “first come first served” basis and leaving it until the last minute might result in disappointment!

As always – any queries before you make up your mind, please get in touch, either by email or telephone 01962 886939.

Many thanks.

*REMINDER* Education Day Course – Plain Hunt and Hunting to Doubles Methods – Sat 14th Oct

With August Bank Holiday behind us and the youngsters returning to school for the Autumn Term, hopefully everybody is now back to regular ringing.   So, just a reminder about the Education Committee’s full-day course on Plain Hunt and Hunting to Doubles Methods which will take place on Saturday 14 October 2017 based in the Goodworth Clatford area.

Applications are already building up but we still have some places available.   If this might be of interest to you, or if you have friends within your tower whom you think it might help, do please give them a word of encouragement – particularly if you have never joined an Education Day before and are unsure about what to expect.

Below  are the poster and application form (both Word and pdf versions) for the Education Committee’s first full-day course of the Autumn;  this is Plain Hunt and Hunting to Doubles Methods, on Saturday 14 October, 9.30 am to 4.30 pm, and is based at Goodworth Clatford.   This is the essential building-block for learners, setting them on the path towards higher things, and we anticipate it will be well supported.

The closing date for the receipt of applications for Plain Hunt is 29 September (the same day as our extra evening on Basic Raising and Lowering, details of which were sent out last week), and with the school holiday season, summer weddings, the Bradfield Course and lots of other commitments, it might be easy to dismiss this with the thought “plenty of time”.   If you think Plain Hunt, or Hunting to Doubles Methods would be helpful to you, or if there are colleagues within your tower whom you think it might help, don’t forget to send in your applications as early as possible.   These are always dealt with on a “first come first served” basis and places can fill up very quickly, often well before the closing date!

As always – any queries, please let me know.
