2016 a year full of interest, co-operation, fun and the passing of good friends. A year when St. George’s Day was given a tremendous boost by the generosity of so many of our bell ringers and the challenge of new ideas. The ‘Rolling Ring’ – a new concept of organising whole Branches and or Counties was considered by those who took part, as being great fun and some even admitted, the best ringing they had ever achieved. Their local media were on to it and gave them a good shout. Then there was the addition of ‘Open Days’ at city centres where several took part with one in particular enticing over fifty newcomers to try their hand. University societies are growing all helping to sow the seeds for the future. The Hand Bells of Britain joining in with special concerts on April 23rd and national organisations giving the Campaign their excellent support. And now a New Year full of exciting possibilities and one where we send our Best Wishes and Good Luck to you all.
