Strategic Priorities 2020 and beyond
2. That no ringer should hit a barrier to their own progression
If a ringer wants to progress, they should always be able to find a pathway that helps them, although it will probably not just be at their own tower.
few years ago there was a concerted effort made to have ringing recognised as a sport in order to try to access grants from Sport England (or some such). The clear answer was a firm 'no'; ringing was not defined as a sport. — Peter Sotheran
I think it's unrealistic to expect the keen learners who go on courses to go back and change the culture of their towers - believe me, I tried. I'm not saying it never happens, but as a way of fixing ringing's current problems, I think it's a non-starter. — John de Overa
I disagree — Roger Booth
You mentioned Simon Linford's 2030 plan, I don't think I've heard about that? In any case, as you say I don't think we have the luxury waiting until 2030 around here. — John de Overa
t doesn't mean do nothing until 2030 when some magical transformation will occur — Graham John
as for "initiatives" "being progressed", good to hear it - are there any details available anywhere? — John de Overa
There are two workgroups focussed on young ringers... — Graham John
but empowering and supporting people so they can get to the point where they can self-sustain in the long-term is I believe more important. — John de Overa
