A message from the W&P Guild Secretary:
One of our aims here is to further encourage participation in our Guild’s WW1 Centenary Commemoration Project.
The ringing performances to date have been wonderful and varied – tenors tolled, touches, quarter peals, peals – on tower bells and handbells, all to honour those ringers and non-ringers who fell during the conflict. Thank you all. Many towers have ensured that their local media has been advised of these special performances and as it is of significant local interest, the communities do appreciate it.
All of our Guild’s towers and ringers can be involved and there is still time to plan something really special.
Please keep looking out for more information as further details will be issued from time to time:
Our second aim then is to inspire towers and new ringers to engage as fully as possible with the recently launched Recruitment initiative
Ringing Remembers …
A new ringer can play a very important part by signing up to become a bell ringer today in memory of the 1,400 ringers who lost their lives in WW1.
It would be very helpful if towers that are wishing to take on new ringers, and are ready to do so, would register their details with the Guild website by emailing [email protected]
See other towers known to be recruiting at https://wpbells.org/learn-to-ring/
If a ringer would like to be able to teach and needs some guidance and support, please suggest they contact:
Mike (Master) https://wpbells.org/contact-mike-winterbourne/
Pete (Vice-Master) https://wpbells.org/contact-pete-jordan/
If you have any queries, please contact Viv https://wpbells.org/contact-viv-nobbs/
Thank you and Happy New Year to all from Mike (Master), Pete (Vice Master), Heather (Hon. Secretary), Ros (Hon Treasurer and Viv (Immediate Past Master and Public Relations Officer).
