With the hope that we will soon all be able to meet up in larger
groups and start ringing together, we have put together a series of
presentations to illustrate examples of good practice. These
presentations will be hosted online during the week commencing Saturday 8th May and are aimed at anyone who is wanting to make the ringing recovery a success.
in the programme there is to be a Q&A session with a panel ready to
answer any questions that may have been bothering you about getting
going again. The final composition of the panel for the Q&A session
has yet to be decided. Lesley Belcher and Simon Linford are definites
but the rest will be selected in an attempt to give the best answer
possible; that is the reason why we are requesting that questions are
submitted in advance. To submit a question in advance for the Q&A session send an email to Annie Hall.
The week concludes with a social event,an online beer tasting, only available to those who have joined in at least one of the other presentations. This is to be led by Hayley Young, a production brewer, who lives in Cornwall; she has been involved in this type of presentation before. Like the beer these have gone down well!
