It was a significant year for the West Wilts Ringing Group. The year started on a sad note, with Mike Hamzij deciding that he would bring his ringing career to a close. Mike has done sterling work over the years, both as secretary to our ringing group and as the ringing recorder for Wiltshire; both roles he has now passed on to others, with Phil Deacon taking over as Wiltshire ringing recorder and me taking on the role of WWRG secretary. I am sure that everybody would like to thank Mike for his hard work and for leaving both roles in such good shape.
There has been a welcome expansion of activity within the group this year, as Andy Palmer, Andrew Bray and Jonny Cooper, having joined Dave Hanham as C-permit holders, started developing their own sites and independent ringing activities, alongside the existing activities of the team.
