Some practices are subject to confirmation that enough people intend to be present. Members receive an invitation shortly before each practice. It is confirmed as soon as enough people have said they intend to be present but it may be cancelled of there are too few. Invitations and confirmation are sent via the members e-mail list. To ensure that you are on the list, contact the Branch Postmaster. For more information about ringing, contact the Ringing Master.
