Jack learnt to ring at Caversham, Berkshire in September 2008 having been taught to ring handbells and handle a bell by Helen McGregor (also a member of the society) on Alderney (CI) the previous summer.
Jack went to university in Birmingham in October 2015, ostensibly studying Geography, and quickly became an active member of a number of bands, including the Monday night peals at St Philip's Cathedral. This qualified him to ring in the Birmingham 12-bell band from 2016-19, achieving victory with the team on 3 occasions.
During this time, Jack took an active role in the running of the Birmingham University Society, serving as master in 2016/7. Jack also became a keen member of the local band at St. Paul, Birmingham.
Since graduating in 2019, Jack moved home to Reading and has started working for an insurance company in London.

What does the Junior Steward do?
The Junior Steward is also involved at London practices as the person who collects steepleage. They deputise for the Senior Steward or Master as required and are the person who meets & greets visitors (although of course other people do this too!). The Junior Steward often gets involved with organising regular Society events - booking peal towers, evening venues or helping with organising peal bands. Much of the role involves assisting the Treasurer in collecting and recording peals and monies.
