Branch AGM January 18th 2020

Dear ringers,

This is advance notification of the Branch AGM which will take place on Saturday January 18th at St Mary’s, Peterborough.

Please come along and support the work of your Branch.

We are trying a slightly different format this year and hope that the simpler and shorter event may encourage you to come:-

*One venue only so no extra travelling,  extra parking problems or extra walking involved!

*Meet at St Mary’s at 2pm for early afternoon ringing followed by a service at 2.45pm

*After the service there will be afternoon tea ( cakes, sandwiches, tea, coffee etc) and the AGM, followed by ringing til 5pm.

We do hope to see you there and I will send out reminders ( several I expect!) and requests for numbers for  afternoon tea early in January.

Best wishes to all


Branch Secretary

quiz again!

If you are doing the Guild quiz you may like to know that 2 further errors have been noted:

70 should read ” uncle’s child”

I hope that is the last of the amendments. Good luck!



Guild quiz & branch bob minor workshop

Thanks to the many people who have already purchased copies of the Guild quiz.

If I’ve neglected to send some to your tower and you would like to have some please let me know and I can send you an electronic copy to print.

For those of you who already have copies apparently there is an error in question 2 which should read October 31 st not November. The electronic copy is already corrected.

And while I’m on line I’d like to express thanks on behalf of all the participants to the team of helpers and organisers who ran such an excellent day at Castor on Saturday. Your hard work was greatly appreciated.




Afternoon tea outing

Thankyou to Diana and Elaine for organising a great afternoon out today. We all had such a good time ringing three lovely sets of bells in Twyford, Cranford St John and Barton Seagrave and enjoyed the novel challenge of ringing 8 counter clockwise.

Thankyou too to those churches for allowing us to ring today and our non ringing members of the party found all three places historically very interesting.

Afternoon tea was delicious too and the sporadic heavy rainfall did not spoil our day.

What a lovely way to spend a wet afternoon!
