Training Programme 2019-20

Here's the guild training programme for this year: I hope there's something of interest for you in it. Because so many things, ringing and non-ringing, happen on Saturdays I am experimenting with arranging some training days mid-week. The pattern will be the usual one of a morning and afternoon session with a pub lunch between.

Students, please note it is essential to book a place in advance. Helpers, please volunteer in good time if you can (I know it's not always possible).

Tue 29th October 10.00 - 4.00 Surprise Minor Day
We will ring a variety of methods including Cambridge and, I hope, London (dependent on enough helpers). Please let me know beforehand if there is a method you wish to ring and I will do my best to include it.

Brecon Cathedral (2.00-4.00)
Lunch, Pilgrims, Cathedral Close

Ringing Resource Centre
St Mary’s, Brecon, is equipped with a simulator and sets of wireless headphones, enabling ringers to practise individually without disturbing each other, or those outside, and we are keen to share this resource. We have regular weekly sessions and all are welcome. Once you have been shown how to use the equipment you can be left to work with it independently or you can opt for individual tuition as you wish.

Please contact me if you have training needs which are nor covered in this programme: also I'd like to take a fresh look at training while keeping what is popular about the current system and I would value guild members' ideas and suggestions on training.
