It goes without saying that 2020 has been a challenging year for everyone, not least in bell ringing terms. I hope you will agree that the Guild has risen to the challenge on many levels to keep members engaged and connected. To everyone who played a part in this, however big or small, I am extremely grateful.
This year, Christmas will be different and as it approaches, I hope that it will be as enjoyable for you as the current circumstances allow.
I wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy New Year.

It is with deep regret that we announce that Andrew Stubbs has died after a short illness.
Andrew, Life Vice-President of the St Martin’s Guild, held the position of Master for 11 years. He was Master of the Ancient Society of College Youths (ASCY) in 1968 and held the office of ASCY Treasurer from 1981 to 2006.
Trish Everett’s husband, Chris, passed away following a short illness on 21 March 2020. Chris’ funeral took place on 1 April 2020 with just the immediate family in attendance.
Trish has given permission for this image of the order of service to be shared with the Guild and has asked that if any of you would like to light a candle and hold the family in your thoughts, they would very much appreciate it.
There will be a memorial service planned with thanksgiving, ringing and burial of ashes at a later date.
