First Guild Youth Practice of 2018 – Sunday 18th Feb

This Sunday is the first Guild Youth Practice of the year. Everyone under 19 who can handle a bell are welcome to come along and ring with everyone

Sunday 18th February 2:30pm-4pm The Clock House, Church Lane, Awbridge, Romsey, SO51 0HN.

We are looking to get a band together to represent the Guild in the Ringing World National Youth Competition which this year is taking place in London in and around Southwark Cathedral on Saturday 7th July.

I would like to hear from anyone that would like to be part of the band this year and we would ask that people would commit to come to the following Guild Youth practices:

Sunday 18th March Bishopstoke
Sunday 6th May Bishopstoke
Sunday 24th June Bishopstoke

The time for Bishopstoke is also intended to be 2:30pm – 4pm but may be subject to change depending on christenings.
