Additional Notes on the Central Branch AGM:

Tea is being purchased from the local Fish and Chip shop and basically there is a choice of two menu items
  • Fish and Chips
  • Sausage and Chips
Other dietary requirements (Vegetarian, Vegan, etc) will be catered for, but you will need notify the to arrange this. You will need to leave a contact e-mail or phone number so that they can get back to you

The upshot of this is that since meals are being ordered from the local Chippy, you will need to give your name to the if you want tea. I know it's a bit clichéd the "No Name, No Tea" warning and usually you can just turn up and there is still plenty to eat, but in this case we really mean it!. Seriously, if you haven't given your name, you will need to make your own arrangements for tea!
NO NAME, NO TEA!
Mushy peas/bread & butter will be available independently from what is ordered from the Chippy. Pudding & tea & coffee will also be provided as usual.

If you wish to leave your name for tea you must do so before the cut off date of Tuesday Jan 5th 2016 latest. You can contact the Sleaford Ringers by e-mailing or you can ring or text the secretary of the Sleaford Ringers on 07815 292945 and leave your name.

Whilst every effort is made to ensure that the above details are correct, events can sometimes be subject to change at short notice and it is therefore recommended that you check details with the relevant Branch Secretary before attending.

Branch events

Please check in The Ringing World or with the appropriate Branch website or Secretary for further information.

Mid-week Practices

The idea of the above programme is to try and advance all our Tuesday ringing meetings and not to frighten people away. We will still continue to ring our usual methods and include the new methods wherever possible.

After the Tuesday Washingborough meetings, there is usually a faith tea at Woodside, Branston afterwards - if you intend to come please email Dot Mason regarding food you wish to bring to share to avoid duplication.

The new Major methods are the 8ths place variations of the standard methods (i.e. Plain Hunt at the lead end).

If you would like to ring any other surprise methods please ask and we will do our best to include them. If you have any questions please email Phil Mason

Joint Surprise Major Practices

Occasional Surprise Major practices are arranged between the Northern and West Lindsey Branches. If you are interested in supporting these please contact one of these Branch Secretaries for details, but please do remember that they are Surprise Major practices, so do not turn up expecting to ring Bob Minor! We need to look after and challenge our more advanced ringers, and these busy practices serve that need across a wide area. Dates when known are included in the table above.

South Lincolnshire Wednesday Group

If you do not regularly attend these practices please telephone Joan Payne on 01778 560633 for any changes to this schedule.

Other Regular Practices

On the second Wednesday in each month from 1030 to 1200 a practice is held on the six bells at Wragby for 'mature' students as Jim calls them.

The Ladies have their own practice on the first Wednesday of each month starting at 1330. If you are eligible and would like to attend please email Sue Faull for details of the venue.
