Diary of events


The list below shows planned events within the Branch. Some events may be subject to last minute change, so if in doubt check again shortly before the event. TBC means that the date and/or time have yet to be confirmed.

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.

The topic for monthly training courses are chosen to suit the needs of the applicants. To apply for a place on one of the courses, please contact the Training Officer
