9) New Members: James ? and Jason Fisher ,, who both ring regularly at Martley and other Guild towers were proposed as members. 
   The Secretary to confirm their full names. 
Alan Wainwright has started ringing at Hallow but we will leave it to the Tower Captain at Hallow to decide if and when to elect Alan as a member. 

6)  Ringing Outing to Cornwall: Alan Gosling was unable to attend but we believe virtually all   	
    towers are confirmed and between 20 and 25 ringers will be attending.

8) Hereford Course. There have been no requests for financial help on the Course this year.

10) AOB:
An order for Guild Regalia had been completed and all items received. Chris Martin is happy to continue coordinating this in the future.
Joe Crocker observed that Suckley continue to struggle for ringers to keep their practice going and Linda Taylor would appreciate any help available. 
It is unfortunate that the practice night clashes with Hallow.
The next meeting is on 24th September 2013.
The meeting finished at 20.50pm.
