GUILD ANNUAL RINGING TOUR
FRIDAY 5th JULY - SUNDAY 7th JULY 2013
The Annual Ringing Tour this year is the same format as last year: a weekend event. Richard Lewis-Skeath has wrought his magic once again. This year's tour will be centred on Ludlow. As last year, this is far enough away to enjoy an overnight stop, but close enough to allow easy travel for those who wish to come just for the Saturday towers. (South Shropshire is a delightful spot - the land that time forgot; and very quiet!* Ed)
The provisional itinerary and other details are as follows. Most towers are confirmed at the time of writing.

Guild Walking Tour
This event will occur on Saturday September 28th.
The walk is planned for the Moreton-in-Marsh, Longborough and Bourton-on-the-Hill area.
The walk is being organised by, and will be led by, Michael Haynes.
Full details will appear in the July Newsletter.
GUILD METAL LAPEL BADGES
At long last, the new Guild lapel badge is here. It is slightly different to the previous version, as its design is the same as the clothing badges (the now 'standard' Guild badge). It is slightly '3D' too, as the features are raised.
£4 each from the Hon Sec.
