News from the Tower

On Saturday 11 May, the AGM of the Bath and Wells Diocesan Association of Change Ringers was held at South Petherton.

The Association, which was founded in 1890, is headed by a Master.  In other associations this position can be titled Chairman or President.

The present Master, Rev Mark Jackson, had indicated he would not be standing for re-election in 2024.  It has been a tradition since the Association was founded that the Master has been a clergyman.  Some years ago, a proposition was put forward that the position could be held by clergy or non-clergy, however, this was voted against overwhelmingly!!

Father Guy had been approached about taking on the position and he was voted in as Master.  He becomes the fifteenth Master in the history of the Association.

The outgoing Master handing over to the new Master.
