“Let’s get this show back on the road!”
The Guild Secretary’s (not so) secret missions:
1. Breathe new life into the guild, make it relevant and fun for now and into the future.
2. Re-connect the guild, celebrate its variety of different ringing styles and traditions.
3. Enable the Guild to develop ongoing and sustainable recruitment and teaching.

In my day job, I’m a Brewing Consultant and in my spare time I love driving ringing forward to enable opportunities for all members and friends of the TDGR. I am totally passionate about enabling ringing of all styles to flourish and thrive for years to come.

I am also a Central Council of Church Bell Ringers Representative for the TDGR and I am part of the Volunteer and Leadership Workgroup.

My father taught me to ring aged 9 in Gloucestershire, I have been lucky to ring wherever I have lived from Kent to Cumbria. Ringing has always formed an integral part of my life and I celebrate the fact you can ring with people of all ages and abilities, from all walks of life. Ringing is like an extended family, you’re made welcome wherever you go!

I firmly believe that all the knowledge and skill that we possess as ringers must be passed on and kept alive by the next generation.
