Warwick Archdeaconry Report - 2017

Our featured practices continued in 2017 and Saturday events were held at a number of churches including Shipston, Sherbourne and Bidford.

At the Annual District Meeting at Napton Barbara Howes was elected Ringing Master and we began a series of focussed Bob Doubles Practices also at Napton, aimed at encouraging people on to the next step. Special thanks go to the Napton ringers for their support and hosting these events.

Many of our members were pleased to join the Richard III outing to Leicestershire, with some ringing for the first time on 10 and 12 bells.

After the success of the Bob Doubles Practices, we began a series of Grandsire Doubles Practices at Radford Semele, and were pleased to welcome a number of local ringers as supporters and tutors, again our thanks go to these ringers and the Radford band.

The Guild AGM was held within our District at Wellesbourne and the Carol Service at St Mary’s Warwick. Members supported both events. Many thanks to all the towers which have made us so welcome this year.
