Following the 2016 Council‘s overwhelming acceptance of the proposal to set up a group to review the Council‘s purpose, structure and function in May, sufficient volunteers have now come forward to form the group. Members are keen to get on with their tasks and have been enthusiastically discussing how to go about them.
As agreed in the motion, the group is equally divided between non-members, ex-members and current members. They are:
Alison Everett, Sussex
Andrew Howard, Bath & Wells
Gemma McGee, New Ringer (Great Malvern Priory)
Tony McIlwrick, Scottish Association
Pat Wheeler, Southwell and Nottingham DG
Phillip Barnes, Kent CA
Peter S Bennett, Llandaff and Monmouth DA
Roger Booth, London County
Simon Meyer, ASCY
Tony Furnivall, North American Guild
David Smith, ANZAB
Duncan Walker, Carlisle DG
Clyde Whittaker, Middlesex
Stefan Zientek, Chester DG
Significantly more people volunteered than required and I would like to thank everyone who offered to help.
One of the Group‘s most early tasks will be to consult all ringers across the Globe to find out what they would like the Council to do for them and for ringing. Please look out for further announcements about how you can contribute to the review process.
