Promoting excellence in ringing around the world

Welcome Guest

2012 AGM Day

AGM Day was held on a sunny autumn day in London, with 5 peals attempts in central London. All these peals were scored, with the details of these shown below.

After the morning peals there was some general ringing at St Martin-in-the-Fields before the "double header" of meetings in the St Martin's Hall. For those who aren't familiar with the rules, we have the Business meeting first, of which there are 4 others throughout the year, and after this is the AGM itself. During the meeting we remembered four members who recently passed away: Rev. Norman J Smith, Doris Colgate, Eric J Brunger and Mark R Rizzo. We also elected three new members: Elizabeth L J Stokoe, Thomas G Scase and Philip D Moyse.

During the Business meeting there were quite a number of points were raised and discussed, so by the time this finished we all definitely needed a 10 minute break before the AGM started. The AGM was a much shorter affair, and it was noted that all Officers are staying on in their current positions for a second successive term.

After the meetings we went for a well needed drink at the Chandos before heading to dinner. Most people were at Prezzo but a small (exclusive?) group went to the Spaghetti House as we had fully booked out Prezzo - it's good to see so many members supporting the whole day.

As people started to make their way home a few people (with shorter journeys home) went to The Harp to agree that a successful day had been had by all.
