Assistant Secretary

Timothy R Forster

Tim learnt to ring at Egham in 2002 aged 10 and developed a stronger interest in ringing whilst at university in Reading. He joined the society in 2012 during his second year of study having received a lot of encouragement from the local SRCY members.

More recently Tim has been living and ringing in central London including at society Wednesday night practices and for Sunday services at St Martin-in-the-Fields and Southwark Cathedral.

Tim is a keen peal ringer, especially enjoying spliced Surprise Major, regularly ringing Norman Smith's 23 spliced and Horton's four. He have recently hit two milestones, ringing his 100th peal for SRCY and a peal of Orion Surprise Maximus.

What does the Assistant Secretary do?

The Assistant Secretary works closely with the Hon Sec to help with the administration of the Society. Commonly this involves keeping membership lists up-to-date and making the Society's social events work by booking people, venues and collecting money. The assistant secretary is often to be found persuading people to come to an event, pressing people to confirm their intentions and pay their money!
