Additionally, for all those who have achieved Learning the Ropes Level 5 there will be a centrally-organised weekend event: The Learning the Ropes Masterclass. This will be run in the second half of 2016 by a team of hand-picked, top flight ringers and will be designed to provide opportunities that are not normally available locally. Travel and accommodation will be arranged/paid for participants based in the mainland UK. If your ringers are nearly at Level 5, can you help them complete it before 31st December? A couple of Christmas quarter peals perhaps!

Don’t miss out – apply for the inaugural ART Awards 2016, to be presented at the famous Taylors Bell Foundry as part of the ART Conference in March 2016.
