Southampton – Ringing Resumes Jan 7th

Hi all,
There is no ringing in Southampton now until the new year.
The nature of our local band is that most of us go away from Southampton to see family or friends over the festive period meaning we rarely have enough remaining ringers in the city for sessions to go ahead.
The next ringing with be Sunday 7th January at Bitterne Park.
The next practice will be Monday 8th January at St Mike’s.
On behalf of the SCR committee, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!
Best wishes,
Daniel
Vice-Master and Steeple Keeper.

**All Members Welcome** District Representative/Officer Forum – Representatives Needed – Saturday 30th Sept- Southampton

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.

Thank You

Mike Winterbourne

Agenda

 

Southampton St Barnabas Access and Parking

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.
