Training update

After best part of a year out of action around the branch, Anne is back and looking for projects to support.  Saturday 10th February saw a very successful morning at Winslow where the band had asked for help in securing their Plain Bob Doubles.  A good group of helpers from around the branch were able to support a two hour session including looking at raising and lowering.  It  is a session that the tower would like to repeat for consolidation in a few months.  Could this be the type of session that your band needs? Horwood are next on the list!

As you will have seen from the AGM report, we have a new monthly practice focusing on developing more advanced ringing on 8.  The first session at Haddenham on Wednesday 28th February will focus on Stedman, Yorkshire and Cambridge, within the normal practice. If you already ring Cambridge Minor or Stedman Doubles this will be an opportunity to move on.  For others it will mean revisiting methods not rung for quite some time.  Please make sure you have done some homework before you come!  There will not be a practice in March as it would fall in Holy Week so the following practice, at Stewkley, will be on Wednesday 25th April.
