CCCBR – Planning for Recovery

the CCCBR steering group have devised a form which covers some of the issues we are going to face (you can of course tailor the word document version to suit your own needs). Every tower is different, but we hope it provides a structure for ringing leaders to plan for a successful return to ringing with their bands. Please do have a look at it and see how it could be used in your tower or area.
