Winchester District Practice Carol Service at Northington on Saturday 14th December

In the run-up to Christmas, your District is pleased to offer you TWO events in the first half of the month, hopefully before you get too bogged down in Christmas arrangements and commitments.

Firstly, we have a District Practice a fortnight tonight, at Broughton, on Monday 9th December. Please note the start and finish times of 7.30 p.m. and 9.00 p.m., half an hour later than Broughton’s usual start/finish times, but arranged thus to spare anyone who cares to support this practice and coming from a distance from having to set out too early in the evening.

Secondly, we are looking forward very much to our Carol Service, a week later than previously mooted, on Saturday 14th December, at Northington, hosted by the Candover Valley Band. As you’ll be aware, the new six has but recently been consecrated, so the afternoon offers much to look forward to.

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible – and, indeed anyone who’d like to join us from neighbouring districts/the rest of the world – at either or both of these events, at which you will be assured of a warm welcome. I’ve attached the usual flyers/posters – please bring to the attention of your band members, or anyone else you think would be interested.

Best wishes,
Bruce
Winchester District Secretary

Wedding Ringers Needed at Broughton, Houghton and Mottisfont Aug and Sept

We have lots of weddings coming up over the next couple of months and I’m afraid can’t get enough ringers for all of them from local resources! Can anyone help please?

We are short of ringers as follows:-

4th August, St Marys Broughton, 1200 wedding, 1 ringers needed

25th August, St Marys Broughton,1500 wedding. 1 ringer needed.

25th August, St Andrews Mottisfont,1400 wedding, 2 ringers needed

22nd September, All Saints Houghton,1300 wedding, 2 ringers needed.

We have been asked to ring before and after all the weddings so pull off time is 30 minutes before the wedding times above.

If you are able to help please could you reply to Bob Gosse

PS: Don’t forget the District Practice, Houghton, 20th November.

Winchester District Practice, Broughton, Monday 24th July 2017

Dear All,

Please find attached the poster for the next Winchester District Practice, Broughton, Monday Week – and my apologies for the shorter amount of notice than usual/than I prefer.

We’ve been successful in attracting good numbers at our recent District Practices, and the Broughton (ground floor) ring will be an interesting experience. The local band will very much appreciate your attendance.

Best wishes,
Bruce

District Secretary

PS. The next quarterly meeting will be on 12th August: the usual format, bring-your-own picnic and a relaxing stroll through the Hampshire countryside. Quite which bit of the Hampshire countryside is yet to be resolved, however. I have one route which is “in the bag” but not very suitable owing to a big wedding at one of the churches, and another possibility for which I await decisions from the tower reps. Wish me luck ….

On Saturday 24th October Eling ringers had their first Outing in quite a few years. Organised by yours truly, for the benefit of our newer ringers to give them experience ringing at different towers. A good day out apart from the weather!
