Guild Activities 2009
Guild Practices: Jenny tabled the draft programme. 
All towers would be visited in the schedule except Hallow, 
which would get the four fifth Wednesday 8-bell practices. 
The space released would be used to give Clifton their outstanding 
trip to the Cathedral Teaching centre. Master to liaise with Mark Regan on this. 
Clifton ringers would also be encouraged to visit Shrawley practices as soon as 
the tower captain there had recovered from his operation.  
Jenny would consider particularly what could be done at Broadwas. 

Guild Calendar: Linda would prepare this. She awaited the key Western Branch dates, 
to be set at its AGM. (Secretary had sent the Guild dates to the Branch Secretary). 
Special practices would be: Cambridge at Shrawley on 17 January from 7-9 pm: and 
Minor 14 March - details to follow. 
There would also be a "Yuletide" Doubles practice at Broadwas on 29 December 7.30-9pm. 

Committee meetings would be 17 Feb and 19 May at Clifton. A September date would set later. 

Hereford Course: it was thought that the Crockers and the Checketts might apply for places. 

Treasurers Report   No change from AGM position. 

Membership
It was agreed to elect Robert Barlow (Martley) to the Guild PROVIDED THAT he was elected 
to the Assn as anticipated at the Western Branch AGM in December. 
Secretary to liaise with Branch Secretary. 

Other Business
Irish Trip: John Haydon, Bob Bayliss and Alan Gosling, all members of the sub-Committee, 
joined the meeting for a general discussion on that issue. They were remitted to prepare 
a detailed proposal for the 17 February Committee, on the lines of a 10 day tour of Eire 
in early September 2009, not seeking to cover all towers, but including social activities 
for non-ringing partners.  They should not commit Guild funds without emergency approval 
from the Officers; and preferably only after Committee discussion. 

Regalia: Secretary was waiting price confirmation from the suppliers, 
but hoped to issue a circular soon. 

Date and place of Next Meeting
17 February 2009 at the Lion Hotel, following practice at Clifton.
