The District Representative/ Officer Forum is approaching fast.
We need three or four representatives from your district to guide the efforts of the Guild Officers and Exec. In considering options generated by the Action Plan, Sharing Ideas and thus making sure the energy of the volunteers on the Exec are using their time effectively.
How many Reps?
Three or four from each district would be good; they need not be District Officers, fill up a car.
Please encourage three or four of your district members to join us on Saturday 30th September, 9:45 am at St Barnabas Church Hall, Lodge Road, Southampton
Why should we send Representatives?
The Guild Exec and Officers are volunteers. They are happy to work towards items that benefit the ringers in the towers and support the Districts. However, none are known to be mind-readers so we need to know what would benefit each ringer and each District.
What is being a problem, What is working for you. Share the good stuff; avoid repeating the less successful.
The Officers and Exec would really appreciate a nudge in the right direction.
Please contact your District Secretary and volunteer to represent your district.
Please let Heather Frazer know who is coming so we put out enough cups and chairs.
Sundays: 9:30 – 10:00 (SUGCR)
Practices: Thursday 5th SUGCR in term time
On Practice Nights and Sunday mornings, access to the church is via the door on Rose Road. There are no steps to access the bells and the area around the church is relatively flat. There is plenty of space to sit out of the way of the bells on comfortable seats.
Parking for both practices and Sundays is on Rose Road with a 2 hour parking restriction with dedicated disabled bays near to the church.
This item by Daniel Graham was first published on the Southampton City Ringers’ website.
All of the Southampton towers rang out today to mark the official 90th birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. 5 quarter peals were successful scored (out of 5 attempted) and there was a fantastic standard of ringing all day.
Congratulations to all those who took part and special congratulations to Kristian/Oliver who called their firsts of Bob Caters and Major respectively, to Pip for first of Bristol and Yorkshire, and to Mike for first on 10.
