The branch AGM for 2014 was held at Weston on the green on the evening of Sat 22nd February. We started with ringing and with the help from some visiting ringers who had heard of our meeting we successfully rang Weston on the green place Doubles, completing my AGM Challenge! We then rang plain courses of Grandsire Doubles and finished with a short touch of Plain Bob Doubles before ringing down.
The service followed ably led by Penny once again – we really must get you to try ringing Penny!!
The branch meeting was held in the church with 13 people present (11 branch members from 7 branch towers, our Guild Steward Colin, and Penny). 5 ringers (2 moving from other guild towers, and 3 new to the guild) were made members of the branch which is good to see as our number has been dwindling in recent years. We have also had a slight change around of branch officers due to one officer moving out of the branch – see the contacts page for details of the new officers. Full minutes of the meeting will be published when we have them.
We then relocated to The Chequers for a lovely pub meal and a chat. A lovely evening with good friends – what could be better?
Next branch event is the branch practice at Islip on Tues 4th March – hopefully see some of you then.
