An old photo

While searching for a document recently I came across the following photo. It says on the back, Taken Feb '79 to commemorate victory in the Four Shires Guild Striking Competition, October 1978. The Ebrington team holds the Newing Shield, which was newly donated.

Next issue of the FSG Newsletter

The deadline for the next issue of the FSG Newsletter (October 2012) is Sept 13th 2012

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 don't worry if you think your handwriting is unintelligible. It can normally be translated. Just send the stuff in!

(Caretaker) Newsletter Editor: .

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.)
