This year we will be traveling to the Far West of Norfolk and into the Wisbech Branch of the Ely DA. We will be ringing at five towers, three sixes and two eights, all with easy-going bells. Lunch will be at The Chequers in Church Road, Wimbotsham.
Betty Baines reports that we made a profit of £920 on the Open Day. This will be divided equally between the Bell Restoration Fund and the Paul Cattermole Fund. She also wishes to pass on her thanks to everyone who helped on the day and to the church wardens and incumbents who allowed us to use their bells.
The next Western Branch Quarterly Meeting will be held on 17 September 2016 from 18h30 at 10, tenor 9 cwt in G
Tuesday 19h30 Gressenhall.
There will be evening ringing after the meeting from about 19h00 to 21h00.
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided. No need to book!
The CCCBR wants to encourage towers to register for Heritage Open days so they can reach their target of 500 churches open for ringing-related events and so that towers opening receive the support package from Heritage Open Days. Registration closes at the end of July and the sooner you register the better.
