Congratulations to all who took park in the Branch Striking Competition at Fulmer on 10th June 2017.

The contest was judged by Joanna Knight (Shiplake) and Jonathan Cresshull (Oxford). The results were as follows:

1st High Wycombe  12 faults

2nd Amersham  26 faults

3rd Clewer  60 faults

4th Bucks & Berks Young Ringers  74 faults

High Wycombe will represent the EBSB in the Guild 6-bell Contest in October in the Witney & Woodstock Branch.

It was particularly good to have a youth team in the contest – a very positive result of Peter Jasper’s efforts with the Young Ringers’ Practices.

Celia Thomas and ladies from Fulmer Church provided refreshments for the competitors, which were very much appreciated.


email picWe operate an Email User Group to facilitate fast and easy communication throughout the Branch and with Guild Officers. All Branch documentation (Agendas and Minutes of business meetings, details of training courses, practices and outings, results of competitions, newsletters, winners of prizes etc) is distributed in this way.

In addition, members of the User Group can request or send information to everyone else by means of a single email – for example, when looking for ringers for a wedding, to cancel a practice, to alert ringers to a change in the time of service ringing, to gather advice from others or involve people in ringing-related discussions. For more information or to join the Email User Group please send an email to the secretary stating the tower to which you belong.
