RESPONSE REQUESTED – Are you coming?

Please could I ask that all who are planning to attend the first friday practice at Castor this month, to please send me a message confirming that you will be coming  ?

If we are short – let’s find out now!  And if we are not I can stop worrying!!



Cambridge Minor

Have you wondered about making the leap into surprise ringing with Cambridge Minor?

Have you rung Cambridge but need more opportunity to crack it?

Have you tried to ring it but it didn’t go well?


If you recognise yourself in any of these descriptions then the branch Cambridge workshops are for you. There will be two workshops, one theory/learning at my home, the second practical at a tower.

If you are interested please drop me an email and we can arrange a date to meet that suits the group.

Finally, if you are not sure if you are at the right stage then your tower captain should be able to advise you, or email me to discuss.


Conducting Workshop

Dear Members,

We are planning another workshop on 13th July, afternoon in Barnack, details TBC. The subject will be basic Bob calling and conducting. This will focus around Bob Doubles and Bob Minor. This will suit those who are already comfortable ringing touches of these methods but want to be able call them and possibly keep the ringing right.
Could I have a virtual show of hands to see who would be interested? Please reply to me so I know who to accommodate.

Feedback Please – Response Requested

Prior to discussions at the upcoming Branch Committee Meeting – please could I ask for some feedback on Branch Activities:

In previous years we have run workshops on Striking and Ringing Up/Down.  If we were to put on some Workshops this year – what topics would you like to see covered?  (possible ideas: Bob Minor, Cambridge, Striking, Conducting, ?something else – do you have a better idea?)

The Castor once a month Branch Practice has recently struggled for support –  what do you like/dislike about this practice?  What sort of practice would you be interested in supporting? What stops you from coming?

I look forward to hearing from you,

James Thorpe
