Heather learnt to ring in 2000 at St John's, Egham and St Peter's, Staines. She joined the Cumberlands in January 2008 and moved to London for university in September of the same year. As well as becoming a regular at Wednesday night practices, Heather was heavily involved with the ULSCR, serving as Master in her second year. She also joined the Sunday service band at St Martin-in-the-Fields, where she was elected Tower Captain in 2014. Having spent most of the last two years working in Berlin, Heather is now back in London and studying for an MA in Archives and Records Management at UCL.
This is her second stint on the SRCY committee, having previously been Librarian.
Outside of ringing, Heather plays hockey, has an interest in genealogy, and enjoys watching football and F1.

What does the Senior Steward do?
The Senior Steward is involved in the ringing side of the Society, being a regular attender of London practices where they help ensure things run smoothly (not least by booking all the towers!) and deputise for the Master. The Senior steward undertakes ad-hoc organising of peals and gets involved with events like NTDD. Other ringing related tasks often fall to the Senior Steward, such as organising special practices and peals.
