Warwick Archdeaconry Report - 2018

The year started with the Guild Quarterly at Wellesbourne, always a great start to the year. This was well supported with members from across the Guild.

Our progressive Grandsire practices continued into 2018 and Saturday events were held at a number of churches including Alcester, Coughton, Barford, Sherbourne, Priors Marston and Snitterfield.

The picnic and ringing at Burton Dassett was a beautiful day in August and although not well attended everyone there had a lovely afternoon.

A successful outing to Worcestershire was held in April incorporating a short Meeting at Evesham tower as our planned Annual District meeting had been snowed off at Whitnash. This was well supported with many members enjoying ringing on the 12 bells at the Abbey.

The 8 bell Striking Competition was held in our area at Leamington.

Ringing in all our towers was an important part of the commemoration of the Armistice Centenary. Many thanks to all the towers which have made us so welcome this year.
