Master's Christmas Musings

  Committee and Team meetings have been a little like the proverbial London buses, none for some time and then four within a short time.  To my shame, I forgot to go to the Training and Recruitment Team’s meeting.  This was obviously a very busy meeting with a good number of training sessions being arranged.  These ranged from “Kaleidoscope on Tour” “Good Practice Seminar 13th March” at Steyning and some workshops prior to the AGM in the Hastings area in May.  These are innovative ideas…

Late Summer Musings

Computers – don’t you love ‘em! I have had three weeks without the internet and only getting emails on my mobile which I could not respond to and had great difficulty in reading. Thank goodness I didn’t get rid of my old one as Alan had the bright idea that it might still work. It did. However, my “new” one is now able to enter the worldwideweb once again so here goes with my latest Musings. A well attended meeting at Twineham was made even…

Midsummer Musings

Two striking competitions two Saturdays running and a wet start to a sunny day.   There the comparison stops.  I have just arrived home from the Alfriston Bell Festival.  What a brilliant day and the sun came out!  Bell Meadow mini ring was working overtime, furrowed brows on the course of the Treasure Hunt, concentration on the faces of the handbell ringers and lots of fun in the striking competition ably judged by David and Caroline House and hot foot back from Worcester two of the…

April/May Musings

What has happened to the Master’s Musing you may ask? Or perhaps not! April started on a sad note when I attended Leslie Weller’s funeral at West Grinstead.  Unfortunately I was unable to attend the Thanksgiving Service later in Chichester Cathedral but I understand that it was a suitably uplifting service reflecting Leslie’s life. Due to problems with my shoulders and neck I was unable to do any ringing during most of April and May.  I had a very full diary at the beginning of…

March Musings

How different the meeting was that I attended today at St Clement’s Church Hastings to the one in 1962!  In 1962 the bells were the old steel bells which were completely out of tune owing to the rusting of the metal.  Also it was a walk around the ringing area to catch the sally.  Today the ringing was in the new and rather splendid gallery on much more tuneful bells and the sallies came straight down! Before I go any further I must apologise for…

Master's Musings

Just an update on the Christmas presents that I was trying to finish when I wrote my last Musings.  I put the last stitch in at 1 a.m. on 28 December, the day the Grandchildren were arriving.  Two knitted blankets were then ready for wrapping.  It was all well worthwhile to see their faces when the presents were opened.  The blankets were in evidence the rest of the holiday. Congratulations must go to Leslie Weller who was awarded an MBE for his work over thirty…
