Winchester District Practice – Owslebury – Tues 2nd April – 7.30-9.00pm

Dear All,
Hot on the heels of our last – and most enjoyable – District Practice last Thursday at Tichborne, we have another, a week tonight, at Owslebury, so, handy for the towers in the centre of our District.  Owslebury has no regular band, and Sunday service ringing is kept going by the ringers of Botley and Curdridge. So, why not come along to the District Practice, and if the bells take your fancy and you aren’t too far away, consider coming along to support the Sunday ringing, 10.30-11.00 – but check with Anthony Manship, tower contact (01962 777264 or email) before you make a special journey.
Hoping lots of people can make it on Tuesday,
Best wishes
Bruce
District Secretary

Dear All,

Please find attached agenda for next Saturday’s quarterly meeting at Owslebury, and the unconfirmed minutes of our last quarterly meeting, at Houghton, back in August. Please bring to the attention of your members and anyone else you think would like to come along to what will be a grand afternoon out.

Please find also a copy of the poster for the day, in which I have corrected a minor and inconsequential typo.

The venue and the subject of the training part of our meeting is, please note, a change from what we had planned, in consequence of our having only a six-bell tower available to us in the area for the day. We shall be learning and rehearsing our skills in Treble Bob Minor, in the Kent and Oxford variations, Kent in particular being a valuable stepping-stone between plain minor methods and treble bob, including delight and surprise methods. Oxford is always a useful extra string to one’s bow.
Look forward to seeing you next Saturday, best wishes meanwhile,

Bruce – District Secretary
