A new Master for SCACR

Billingshurst was the venue for this year's AGM. We enjoyed some good ringing on the easy-going eight, ably led by Graham Hills, Ringing Master of the Western Division.

The Reverend Brian Pritchard led the church service and spoke of expectations.... and then it was off to a superb tea laid on by the Billingshurst band. Expectations were duly met!

The AGM got into full swing with David Kirkcaldy in the chair. Reports were adopted, Officers elected and two ballots taken. The first to elect the SCACR's Fifth Representative on Central Council (2014-2016) and David Kirkcaldy narrowly beat Alan Baldock. The second to elect John Norris of Hurstpierpoint as an Honorary Life Member. This was motion was carried by a majority.

A number of other matters came under discussion - more o

At the end of the formal meeting, David Kirkcaldy handed the Master's Chain of Office to Christine Baldock. John Norris proposed a vote of thanks to David for his commitment to the association during the last three years.

With the formal proceedings finished, the floor was given to Anne Franklin who spoke about the Vision of the new working group and encouraged all to attend or send tower representatives to a series of 8 discussion groups across the county. More of that later!

Very many thanks to everyone who contributed to the success of the AGM.
