Wessex R G Biennial Report 2016–17

Thanks to help from the webmaster, Joe Gillespie, it is now a lot easier to update the CHOG ringing pages. I hope to keep this page updated with news about ringing operations in and around Christchurch Harbour. This year sees the birth of a new Ringing Group, Wessex Ringing Group, which will operate at sites in Dorset, Hampshire and Wiltshire. This new ringing group has come about in order to make administration of ringing operations a lot easier - next time you see me ask and I will explain further!

I have just finished the 2016-17 biennial report for Wessex RG (see box alongside) which includes details, photos and ringing totals of all activities at Christchurch Harbour Ringing Station during that period.

Another new innovation that us Ringers are starting to get to grips with is the new BTO website "DeMon" which replaces the IPMR software program. This website is not only for Ringers but can be used by Nest Recorders involved in the BTO Nest Records Project.

Bi-ennial Reports

There are now reports for 2008-9, 2010-11, 2012-13, 2014-15 and 2016-17 freely available to download in .pdf format. These contain full details of all ringing activities undertaken by the group along with colour photos from these years.
