Message from the Chairman – Use of a Strapper

Following an inquiry received by the committee as to whether a strapper could be used for the tenor at the Six Bell South Qualifier, the Chairman would like to make this announcement:

“After consultation with committee members, the Devon Association is to allow a strapper in the 2020 Six Bell Qualifiers (South – East Portlemouth and North -Burlescombe) and the Major Final at Molland.” PLEASE NOTE: a strapper is solely for the purpose of helping with the rising and lowering and not for any verbal aid or coaching of the ringing.

In any one competition any competing ringer may ring once and strap once
