Happy Christmas from the Master

Dear members,

2018 is drawing to a rapid close and I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for supporting our association over the past twelve months.

Ringing Remembers was a huge focus for us this year as we approached the centenary of the World War I Armistice. My thanks go to all those took the time to help recruit and train new ringers, Sussex can be rightly proud to be one of the leading associations for recruitment of new ringers this year! So far over 140 new ringers have started to learn the art, and we look forward to welcoming them into the Association. If you haven't already nominated your new ringers to become members of the Association, details can be found here.

As we move towards 2019 please continue to support the ringing in your local area, district, and over the wider association. It is hoped to hold some new practices and events over the coming year, a great chance to progress your ringing and meet other members of our association, these can only be a success if we give them the support they deserve. Full details can be found on the calendar.

The Annual District Meetings take place in February and are a hugely important time to come together and help play a part in running your association. Details of the ADMs will be distributed by your District Secretary shortly, your support at these meetings would be greatly appreciated. Please do encourage your new ringers to come along!

It would be great to know your ringing related New Year’s Resolutions and be able to help support you in achieving these. Maybe it’s trying to improve your striking, moving onto a new method, ringing up and down in peal, or learning to conduct. If there’s something you’d like to try but need a helping hand, please get in touch.

Finally, I'd like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy Christmas, and all the best for 2019!

Best Wishes,

Rob Lane
