11th January. The NWACBR (Gwynedd &
West Clwyd Branch) held
its Annual General Meeting at St David's Church, Bangor. There
was quite a good turnout on an occasion where most felt a tinge of
sadness as the Church will close later this month. Members
enjoyed the ringing, a short service and an excellent tea. At the
subsequent AGM members re-appointed the officials so David Raggett
(Llandudno), Chris Jackson (Bangor) and Stan Whittaker (Llandudno)
continue as Ringing Master, Secretary, and Treasurer respectively
in the New Year 2014
