What part do Society members play?
The Committee are working hard to bring all of these planned events to fruition, and with all of these arrangements in place, we need Society members to support the hosting of this event and be the "face of the BnD". We need you to join in and take part in the arranged events.
We are also looking for people willing to play an active part at specific times. If you would like further details on how you can be actively involved, please contact us.
This is a great opportunity for celebration and coming together, particularly after so many difficult months, which have been challenging for many. However, we cannot do this without your support - this needs to be a team effort to be a success.
Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions, and we thank you in anticipation of your support and assistance.
With kindest regards
BnD Monthly Meetings - Tower Bell Ringing
BnD meetings are traditionally held on the second Saturday of each month. At this time, no arrangements can be made to ring at towers in our area. As soon as it is safe and allowable to do so, we will arrange ringing for meetings, subject to availability.
Until this time, you can get your 'ringing fix' by visiting the BnD Ringing Room and joining a virtual practice. Regular BnD ringingroom practices are hosted on Ringing Room at Beverley and District tower. Ringing normally takes place on Monday and Wednesday at 7:30pm. Please email us if you would like to join a practice.
BnD Monthly Meetings - Business
Business Meetings are held every Quarter, the next one is scheduled for Saturday, 11th September. If this and future Business Meetings in 2021 cannot be held as face-to-face events, the meeting will be held as a virtual event, hosted on the Zoom platform. Full details will follow nearer the time.
