The Guild has a training fund to assist with:
- The recruitment and retention of ringers
- The training of ringers
- The running of courses
- The provision of training equipment
- Other activities and materials directly associated with training.
Application for grant
Applications for grants in support of training sessions (e.g. hire of room, catering expenses, purchase of CDs, approved training course fees, etc) should attach receipts or booking details where appropriate. Applications for equipment will need to be accompanied by specification and cost details.
Having regard to the limited resource of the fund, full reimbursements of costs cannot usually be expected.
This fund was initiated in 2011 when the Guild received a generous legacy. It welcomes income from standing orders, wills, bequests, collections at ringing meetings and practices, special fund-raising events by members (all with Gift Aid when possible) and other means.
