JoAnne Rutter, as General Secretary, says:

It is with the greatest pleasure that I announce that the General Committee has voted to recommend Tom Ridgman for an Honorary Membership of the Ely Diocesan Association of Church Bell Ringers. This will be subject to ratification by the AGM. Notice of this recommendation is required, and is hereby given.

Alban Forster, as Ringing Master says:

We've decided that a striking contest isn't favourable on AGM day. Instead we shall have a normal practice but if any bands would like to prepare and practise a touch in advance, they can perform it. Depending on numbers, we can create breakout rooms and have different ringing rooms. We should also encourage people that they can just come and listen in to the ringing on Ringing Room and won't be pressurised to ring. We can provide the links of the different ringing rooms and you don't need an account to just access the room to listen.
