Winchester District Practice – Old Alresford – Mon 17th Dec – 7.30-9.00pm

Dear All
With apologies for the late notice, our seventh and final District practice of the year is taking place at Old Alresford next Monday from 7.30 onwards.
So if there are any of you who were considering cancelling your own practices next week because it’s getting near to Christmas – what with carol services, Christingle services, watchnight services and so on, the District Practice is your chance to get your ringing fix for the week, and early on as well. (I am aware that Sparsholt will be practising on Monday, btw)
I’ve no idea what we shall ring, but it will be anything from rounds and call changes upwards. We’ll just have to see who can make it.
Look forward to seeing as many of you as can make it,
best wishes meanwhile

Winchester District QDM, Picnic and Walk – Saturday 11th August 11:00am – 4.30pm

WIN QDM 20180811

Dear All,

Further to my last as below, here – at last! – is the paperwork for next Saturday’s meeting in New Alresford.

Planning of the walk has not been straightforward, as it looks to me as though there has been some encroachment upon (and rendering impassable of) some of the public rights of way. Another consequence of …. no, don’t get me started.

Anyway, I’ll get the walking notes out anon, plus see to all the other things I should have done since May.

Best wishes meanwhile

District Secretary

Dear All,

The next quarterly meeting of the Winchester District will, as in previous years, comprise a gentle stroll round the lanes of Hampshire – specifically, from New Alresford, by a somewhat circuitous route, to Old Alresford, and then, back by a more direct route to New Alresford, where you can take afternoon tea/go for a pint/whatever, before returning home.

This will take place on the second Saturday in August, i.e. 11th August, and will follow the usual format of ringing, BYO picnic lunch and then the meeting, then the walk to Old Alresford for more ringing. By decision of the AGM this will be our last ever August meeting, so we/you need to make the most of it.

I am away from the office for a few days, hence this advance warning. I’ll send out the usual material on my return.

best wishes

Bruce
District Secretary

New Alresford practice moved to Old Alresford 31st March

Dear All,
The subject line tells you all you need to know: New Alresford St john the Baptist has been commandeered for a rehearsal of The Messiah a week tonight so the New Alresford band is decamping to Old Alresford SMtV for their practice. If you were thinking of joining the New Alresford practice, Old Alresford’s where you need to go.
Best wishes
Bruce
District Secretary
