Change Ringing for the Future
Your views are needed! Urgently!
The Central Council of Church Bell Ringers has put together a proposal for a regional focus on ringing which is hoped will help Guilds and Associations across the world with the recruitment and retention of ringers.
Time is short as this is going to be a discussed at the next Central Council Meeting on 25 May 2015 and Pip Penney (Association CC Rep) will be in attendance to represent us; it is important the the views of members of our Association are known and communicated at that meeting.
Please would Association Members read the email below and the attached paper and then if you have any comments then please either:

2015-16 Calendar updated
Each year the Association publishes a printed "Fixture Card" for its membership. Whilst the card may be correct at the time of going to press, practices and events can and do change after publication/printing. Ringers are advised to check this website before attending a practice or event, particularly one to which they do not normally go.
As an additional service, the current, updated Calendar is available for download/import into personal electronic devices.

2015 Monmouth Branch Striking Competition
This year's Monmouth Branch Striking competition was held at Nash on Saturday 16th May 2015 on what proved to be a lovely sunny afternoon. Once the pub opened the setting was perfect!
The event also incorporated the Branch's now annual cake-baking competition. Standards in both the ringing and baking proved to be high.
2015 Llandaff Branch Striking Competition
The 2015 Llandaff Branch 6-Bell Striking Competition was held at St Illtyd’s church, Llantwit Major, on Saturday 9th May 2015. It was a sunny afternoon although quite chilly when the sun went in. It was interesting that throughout the afternoon the ringers were equally split between waiting inside or out. The judges were Matthew and Debbie Turner (Rumney).
