Bingham District Report 2018

This year we have explored several new patterns to the way our monthly meetings are organised. These have included morning meetings, sometimes with a pub lunch, outings and a quarter peal day, as well as a couple of more “traditional style” meetings. The morning meetings and outings have been very popular and we plan to continue to include these in the programme in future. It was difficult to say why the quarter peal day was unsuccessful but only two towers attempted quarters and only one succeeded. The outing run in September was much more successful and our thanks to Lyn who put on a good selection of towers and excellent stops between ringing. This was well attended and ringing was for all abilities. Partners and friends came along which made it an enjoyable day for all. The Holme Pierrepont ringing on 6, in December was very well attended with lots of new faces, we hope to see many of them again as we move onto a similar programme next year.

In November many towers rang in celebration of the 100th Anninversary of the Armistice. These included 4 ringers who had been recruited by the Ringing Remembers campaign. Sponsorship of some of the quarters raised £900 towards the Poppy Appeal.

Overall membership fell from 138 to 119 in 2017. Sadly Colin Wightman from Holme Pierrepont died during the year. Chris and Jill Birkby have moved away. Their contributions will be missed.

Thanks are due to Bill Shanks for organising quarter peals at Colston Bassett on a monthly basis; it is good to know that even though there is no tower band, these excellent bells are rung regularly.

I would also like to thank all those who have helped, by supporting ringing and events in any way.
