2019 AGM

After a splendid days ringing in the Oxfordshire area (including a ring on the “The Stillpits Ring” mini-ring assembled outside the Prince of Wales public house in Shrivenham, see right), our 2019 AGM was held with a gathering of 16 people. Other than the OUSA Delegate, the entire committee was re-elected to serve for another year.

Names of those interested in the November Quarter Peal weekend were requested – a weekend culminating with a ring in Wells Cathedral for Evensong. The program of future events was discussed including the 2020 visit to the Channel Islands in June (to Jersey and Guernsey). Also in 2020, there will be the Spring meeting in March to the Leicestershire area and then the 2020 AGM.

After the meeting, a handbell quarter was rung to congratulate Sue Tompsett on her election as an Honorary Life Member of the Society.

A very eventful Quarter Peal weekend took place over the period 15, 16 and 17 November in the Somerset area. Of all the attempts, 8 were successful (some may say, more than expected).

Full details will probably appear in the next issue of our Newsletter (due for publication on 16 December). In summary:

15th Milborne Port 1344 Plain Bob Triples

16th North Wootton 1260 Plain Bob Triples

16th Ditcheat 1440 Plain Bob Major

16th Horsington 1260 Grandsire Doubles

16th Pitcombe 1260 Plain Bob Minor

16th Stoke Trister 1440 Plain Bob Minor

16th Wincanton 1260 Plain Bob Triples

17th Wells Cathedra 1259 Grandsire Caters

Judging by overheard comments, all thoroughly enjoyed the company and the event, which was well organised by Paul Feast.
