Chris Mew has offered to run, for members of the Guild, a webinar on conducting. This will last for about 1 hour and cover the basic information all new conductors will need. Depending on requirements, Chris has offered to run additional sessions on more advanced calling, including conducting quarter peals.
The sessions will be run by either Skype or Zoom depending on which technologies candidates have access. Timing will depend on availability but the first is likely to run next Friday, 24th April.
Over the years, Chris has run a number of sessions for the Guild, and they always prove popular.
In addition, the Association of Ringing Teachers, in conjunction with the Volunteer and Leadership Work Group of the Central Council of Church Bell Ringers, have developed an excellent Recruitment and Retention Workshop. It is my intention to run a half day training session, maybe in October, on this excellent toolbox. Until then, if anyone would be interested in attending an hour Zoom webinar on this topic, to formulate plans to recruit new ringers, please email me directly and we can set up some sessions.
