2015 AGM update

On Saturday 21st February 10 branch members (from Launton, Bicester, Islip and Charlton on Otmoor), 2 new recruits (also from Bicester) and 2 Guild representatives met at Launton for the Branch AGM. Ringing started at 10:30am with call changes. More call changes followed as I went to prepare for the service – thanks to those who continued running the ringing.

We held a half hour service led by the Rev Becky Mathew and then held our meeting in the church. All officers were re-elected and 3 new members (Samuel Cole, Nicholas Thomas and Amanda Harris, all of Bicester) were elected. Reports were presented (most reports were made available prior to the meeting on the branch website).

As well as a number of guild dates, a few dates of note were mentioned:

  • Fri 13th March – trip to Leigh End mini ring in Wheatley – contact Anthony if you wish to come along
  • Sat 18th April – branch outing to Bedford area – exact route to be published when all towers booked.
  • Sat 5th Sept – Branch BBQ and Striking Competition

Full minutes of the meeting will be made available in due course.

Following the meeting an excellent lunch was enjoyed by many of us in the Black Bull, Launton.

Next branch event will be the Branch Practice in Islip on Tues 3rd March – hopefully see lots of you there.
