Central Council Review – Have your say!

The Central Council Review Action Group (CRAG) would like as many ringers as possible around the world to complete the short survey that is available at the following URL:

It really only takes a few minutes, but your feedback is extremely important in helping to shape the future of the Central Council and potentially, in turn, the future of ringing in general.  Please share the link to this survey will any other ringers you can – ringers in your own tower, neighbouring towers, ringing friends – ANY ringers you know!

If you want to know more about what CRAG have been doing since they were set up last year, please go to the KCACR website and look under County News –
