The Decisions as approved at the May 27-28, 2018 Central Council meeting as part of the transition motion

Please note, these are the same as the Central Council Decisions that were in place under the former Council structure. 

Work is currently in progress to replace these Decisions with a new Framework for Method Ringing.

The CCCBR Executive agreed to the following General Fund budget for 2019 at their meeting of 28 November 2018. The figures are influenced by the carry over of a proportion of the Ringing Remembers Grant and the agreement to a number of one off Workgroup project expenses for 2019.

The Treasurer is always happy to answer any questions on the agreed budget.

Budget 2019
