Every year the Guild Rules require that members are elected to the posts of Guild Master, Hon Treasurer, Hon Secretary and Ringing Master (the Guild Officer posts). In addition, six members are elected to serve on the Committee.

Under the newly agreed Rules, every three years the Guild needs to elect members to the posts of President, Vice President (2nr at present) and Central Council Representatives (2nr required). This year these posts additionally come up for election.

Regarding the Central Council reps, Keith Murphy has indicated that he will not stand again. Chris Povey, the other rep, is likely to stand again, so one person will be required in this respect.

It helps greatly if the attached proposal slip is used to put candidates forward. It means the candidate doesn't have to be there, as his/her permission is already signified.

Firstly, please consider standing for these posts. Secondly, please propose candidates (and please use the slip!)

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!
