12) AOB:

John Haydon wondered what could be done to involve Ombersley ringers more in the Guild. Joe will ask Andrew Horn what might be of help.
John Haydon reminded the meeting that Maria Masters still needs to be elected as a member of the Western Branch. Fred will do this at the AGM.

The meeting finished at 21.00pm and the Committee was very grateful for the hospitality provided by Sue and Joe Crocker..
