Mid-Devon Forthcoming Events
Guild AGM 16th June based on Newton Abbot
This year it is the turn of the Mid-Devon Branch to host this event. Plans are advancing and we will be looking for help with serving food and manning two open towers (among other things!). Please keep the day free, if possible, as we welcome ringers from across the county. More details later.
Buckfast Abbey Millennium – Ringers' Day Saturday 11th August
This year sees celebrations at Buckfast to mark 1000 years since the original foundation of the Abbey. As part of that celebration a whole day of events centred on bell ringing and the Abbey bells is planned. So far plans are at an early stage, but it is hoped to have events running for the whole day, culminating in a ringers' service with music led by a choir of ringers similar to the annual Carol Service which has proved so popular. The scale of the event will need lots of volunteer stewards so please put it in your diaries and look out for further information as we get it. There will, of course, be opportunities to ring on the Abbey's fine ring of bells.
