Change ringing not popular in 1911


A RW article published 24th November, 1911

The annual meeting of the South Eastern district was held at Brentwood, on Saturday, and in spite of the wretched weather, ringers turned up from Gt. Totham, Braintree, Bentley, Boreham, Romford, Widford and Galleywood. The members attended service at St. Thomas’ Church, part of the Association’s form for such occasions being added to the usual evening service. The members afterwards partook of tea, and the subsequent business meeting, Mr. Howard presided, and Mr. Edwards, the Master, and Mr. Cooper, the hon. Secretary, were unanimously re-elected to their posts, Springfield was selected for the next meeting place. – The Rev. H. T. W. Eyre proposed a hearty vote of thanks to the Vicar (the Rev. A. C. Newton) for the use of the bells and for the service. – Mr. Howard seconded, and also thanked Mr. Harris for having the bells ready, and urged him to make an effort, together with his fellow ringers, to take up the art of change ringing. If a combination of South Weald, Bentley, Brentwood, and louboutin heren schoenen, later on, Shenfield, could be arranged, he could not see why change ringing not become popular in the district. – Mr. Harris, replying, assured those present he would do his best to entice his fellow ringers to take up the art, and join with the towers mentioned, so that change ringing might be introduced into his own belfry.
