YACR Western Branch Calendar Events 2019

Saturdays 2nd and 16th Nov - Quarter Peel Days

  • Saturday 2 November, organised by Andy Sutherland, ringing at towers in the North of the Branch
  • Saturday 16 November, organised by Rebecca Kirby, ringing at towers in the South of the Branch.  There will also be a Branch Social/Quiz that evening at Lightcliffe – more details in due course.

These would be along the lines of the ones organised in previous years.  Each would involve the ringing of several quarter peals over the day, with more than one quarter going on simultaneously, according to demand.  Methods would be tailored to suit the ringers available.  On each day, each participating ringer would ring 1-4 quarters depending on their wishes, the level of demand and the availability of other ringers and conductors. There would be 4 sets of quarters through the day, with a break for a pub lunch in the middle.  On 2 November ringing would be in towers in the Northern part of the Branch, on 16 November ringing would be in towers in the Southern part of the Branch, but in each case members from throughout the Branch would be welcome to join in either or both days.

Please can those on the Branch list to whom this has been sent ensure it is passed on to those in their towers who may be interested.

People who would like to be involved in the event on 2 November should email Andy at sutherlandandy686@gmail.com and those who would like to be involved in the event on 16 November should email Rebecca at rebeccakirby03@gmail.com . If you wish to be involved in both days please email both Andy and Rebecca.  

Please reply by 31 August at latest, letting us know your contact details (email preferred), how many quarter peals you would ideally be interested in attempting over the day (1,2, or as many as needed), and any special requests.  Please note that we can’t guarantee completely to meet people’s requests, but at least if you tell us, we will know!  Please feel free to discuss this in towers.  We can include some attempts for first quarter peals for people, although it may not be possible to fit in too many, if necessary we can help coordinate a band for an alternative date. Volunteers to conduct also welcomed.

Saturday Nov 16th - Branch social and quiz.  Lightcliffe.

Saturday Dec 7th - We won’t be holding a carol service this year, but instead, there’s a general branch meeting. Venues to be decided.
