The Essex Association of Change Ringers   President: The Right Reverend the Lord Bishop of Chelmsford

Last Call for Essex Association Dinner

The 63rd Annual Essex Dinner is now just four weeks away and time is running out to book your place at Little Channels, Little Waltham, near Chelmsford! If you are thinking of joining those who have already booked, either as an individual, a couple or a table of eight, then now is the time to act. Please check with your fellow tower members at your practices or Service ringing this week.

The cost of the Dinner is £32 - I hope you will appreciate that this represents excellent value for money. The evening will take the normal format, black tie or lounge suit, we will gather at 6.45pm for 7.30pm with time to socialise before the meal and speeches. There is time for further socialising afterwards. There is a pay bar with real ale too!

To help with the organising it would be very much appreciated if you could book and pay for your tickets at the earliest opportunity.

The speakers this year are Christopher O’Mahony, the newly elected President of the Central Council of Church bell Ringers, who I am sure will have something to say about the reforms of the Council and how it might affect our Association and ringers, and the Rt Revd Roderick Thomas, Bishop of Maidstone since 2015 and a provincial episcopal visitor for conservative evangelical members and parishes of the church.

The booking form can be downloaded from the website, select your menu choices, add your name and send your completed form, SAE (for tickets) and full payment (payable to ‘EACR’) to Andrew Brewster at the address below. If you wish to pay by bank transfer please ask me for details.

Please come along and support the dinner! Please consider bringing a raffle prize as an individual or as a tower. Even if you aren’t coming to the dinner please consider donating a raffle prize – all proceeds are for bell restoration.
