Fresh Sunday Ringing

This morning, winter dispelled by the snowdrops and daffodils, Bethany, Bob, Janet, Janice, Keith and Nigel rang call changes (four different conductors) as well as ringing both up and down in peal. What an excellent start to spring.

Tower Decision 2015

On 19th January, interested parties will gather in The Greyfriar at or before 7:30pm in order to discuss the following over some suitable libations:-

1930: Apologies – There won’t be any, we don’t care.

1931: Approval of 2014 AGM minutes – They will be, we don’t care.

1936: Future of band. To consider:

i. Continue as Chawton – Who knows? maybe, if there are at least four of us.

ii. Merge with Bentworth – We’ve pretty much done that already.

iii. Merge with Selborne – Selborne’s nearer than Bentworth.

iv. Disband – Again.

 

2011: Treasurer’s report – Have we got any money?

2016: 2015 subscriptions – to the guild, if only for insurance purposes.

2021: Wedding/Service cover arrangements – Who will we sub out to?

2036: Band development/publicity – If we’re going to carry on, a plan might help.

2100: Time for bed said Zebedee.

December Sunday morning

First Sunday of the month means ringing for service at Chawton. Today we (Bethany, Bob, Chris, Janet, Janice and Keith) rang call changes combined with ringing up and down in threes.

Tomorrow will see the first Chawton practice in preparation for a full range of ringing in Chawton and Bentworth throughout December.

Combining towers

Over the last few weeks Chawton and Bentworth have joined forces, coming together for Sunday ringing and for Monday practices and this has proved greatly beneficial to both bands.

On Monday this week the practice was held in Chawton. Ten people turned up and we rang call changes, plain hunt, plain bob minimus, plain bob doubles and grandsire.

Excellent practice, admirably led by Chris Hurley from Bentworth.
