President’s Report for Virtual AGM 24/10/2020
Tower bell ringing is still limited across the country. During this period, as well as any
Government guide lines, please still remember to do the basics well to help keep yourself
and all the other members as safe as possible. It is our aim to support our members in
getting back on the end of a rope as soon as it is safe to do so.
Even now there are still things you can do, from hosting some theory sessions for other
ringers, to bringing on leaders, organisers and enthusiasts for the future. Think about who
they are in your area, and help them.
It is also a good time to check that all your bells and fittings are sound and well maintained.
Whilst you’re up there, check for jackdaws piling twigs on/against the frame and look for
any signs of leaks and dampness. Whilst it’s quiet, it could be a good time for some painting
or decorating to freshen up the ringing chamber.
Meanwhile, the Guild will be hosting more relevant, varied and interesting virtual events,
whilst still conducting Guild affairs and business where it is safe and possible to do so.
The Guild is always here for help and advice.
