The Castor Saturday morning ringing school is entering its 8th year of continuous training of novices through to method ringing. During this period we have had about 70 trainees from a large number of different towers from as far afield as Kings Lynne, Huntingdon and Rutland. We currently have trainees from Warmington, Nassington, Wadenhoe, Great Casterton, St. Johns, Peterborough and Huntingdon. We have a “hard core” of half-a-dozen regular trainers/helpers with a further 5 or 6 who will fill in when we are short. Sadly we lost one of our helpers last year with the sudden death of Geoff Davies.
We occasionally hold specific training days for branch towers, a couple of years ago we held a Bob Minor day and last year we had a Train the Trainers course. Before Christmas past and present trainees and trainers met up at ‘the Feathers’ for an excellent Christmas Lunch.
