Instead of taking place at Huntsham on Saturday 22 April, the workshop will now be held at Stoodleigh on Saturday 29 April between 10am and 12pm. This is to avoid a clash with the Open Festival at Crediton. All Welcome! And thanks are extended to all ringers who have supported these sessions so far.
