St Lawrence Church Bradwell bellringers

Bellringers’ AGM

The Bellringers’ Annual General Meeting was held at the church on Wednesday 16th January with a good turnout from the band.  We have had a good year: meeting most of our Sunday ringing commitments, all of our Easter and Christmas ones and rang in the New Year.  We rang two quarter peals: one for the Mayor’s challenge and one in memory of Sapper Bird from Bradwell Village.  We also recruited one new ringer as one of the ringing replacements for those lost in the First World War, and that ringer was able to take part in the national ringing in commemoration of the end of the war.  We do have a number of financial commitments over the next 3 years as all of the ropes will need replacing but we did commit to making a donation to the church roof replacement fund.  All of the current tower officers were re-elected to their posts and we look forward to working with the new incumbent, recognising that Alan has provided a useful link to the wider church this last year.
