New Website

From: Louise Nightingale via ccsocieties <ccsocieties@cccbr.org.uk>

Ahead of launching the new Central Council website we want to take the opportunity to get feedback to make sure we are headed in the right direction.

The current website is the result of hard work from lots of volunteers over a number of years and has hundreds of pages of content. Some of these need updating to reflect latest structures or guidance, and some need to be archived/deleted. Rather than try to update the existing pages we felt it easier to start from scratch. However, we didn’t want to throw away any of that hard work that is still needed so used analytics from the website to make sure we recreated the pages that are most visited.

We recognise that we may have missed some useful and important material when creating this new site, so will keep the current site running in parallel for a period of time allowing you to access the existing content. During this time we will monitor what is being accessed and migrate it to the new site, where appropriate.

This is where you come in… Ahead of the launch, we would value your feedback on the new website:

  • Can you navigate it easily?
  • Can you find the information you need most?
  • General thoughts and observations.

The launch date is set for 1st June and whilst we are aiming to squeeze as much as we can in this first release, some updates may have to wait for future releases.

East Branch Programme

The calendar shown here tells you what's going on in the branch. The default view is the Agenda [a simple list of the dates of forthcoming events]. You can scroll down the list or click on the weekly or monthly view to see an alternative display of what's going on in the branch. If you're interested in a particular event, click on it, and when more detail is revealed, you'll also have the option to add that event to your own calendar.

The 2020 Programme is available here

Tower News

If your tower is not having a practice or Sunday ringing, let us know and we'll post it here.

In general, don't automatically assume towers are having their normal ringing practice [or will notify us if they not]. As a courtesy, and to avoid disappointment, call the tower in advance to confirm their practice is still on and/or to let them know you're coming.
