STOP PRESS!! Our application to affiliate to the Central Council of Church Bell Ringers was warmly received by the Admin Committee on 20th March. Stage 1 successful! The application now goes for full-Council approval at the end of May. Hopefully this, the final stage, will be successful, too.

Subscriptions, subscriptions . . . . . . Have you paid yours yet? Less than 50% have been paid as at the middle of March. Late-payers, do you think you might. . . . . . just. . . now?

Next issue of the FSG Newsletter

The deadline for the next issue of the FSG Newsletter (July 2010) is JUNE 13th 2010

This Newsletter survives only because of the contributions you make to it. Without them it will fail. Articles can be submitted to the undersigned via email or to the postal addresses shown above, or to any committee member.

Please contribute something, however small (or large). You would be surprised the things people enjoy reading about. A few suggestions: an historical item; a funny story; a quarter peal report; poems; puzzles; tales, events past and to come; a ringing tour, even! Send them in. They will all be welcome - and photos, too, you'll notice.

. . . . and don't worry if you think your handwriting is unintelligible. We can normally translate! Just get it to us.

The Newsletter Team: &

If sending articles by email, please use MS Word (not the dreaded Works) format for written articles, JPG format for photos, and scanned items in PDF or JPG formats. (We have the facility to scan photo prints if you haven't.) Please let us know ownership of photos for acknowledgement where relevant. If you have a long article, you might consider breaking it into parts. (* If you've only got Microsoft Works, then Save As your article into Rich Text Format - ie, suffix .rtf - and send in this form.)
