Guild New Year 2017
This year James (Junior) took on the task of hosting 12 ringers at his Northamptonshire abode. The trip kicked off with a quarter peal and a walk for the early birds. On New Year's Eve we visited 5 different towers, all exciting in their own special way and one of which required ear defenders, before ringing in the New Year at Brigstock. Another quarter peal followed on New Year's Day and then 10 intrepid members of the party played some rather soggy paintball. Thanks must go to James and his family for cooking lots of delicious food and for putting up with us!

Christmas Dinner - 4th December 2016
Dinner for 18? No problem! As long as everyone brings their own plate, cutlery, glass and chair! Plenty of food was had by all, secret santa presents were swapped, and everyone took part in a (slightly aggressive) game of pictionary. Merry Christmas!
Southern Universities Association Weekend - 11th-13th November 2016
Ringers from Cambridge, Southampton, Bristol, Oxford, London and Leicester congregated in Cambridge for a weekend of striking competitions, open towers, beer and dancing.

Freshers' Fair - 4th-5th October 2016
