How to lead: An interview with the inspiring Linda Garton

Show host Cathy Booth aims high this month in conversation with accomplished ringer and leading light Linda Garton.

Linda strongly believes that “success breeds success” and, as you’ll hear, this is amply illustrated in both her own ringing career and the winning bands that her leadership has inspired.

So muster your motivation, make a plan and put some of Linda’s practical ideas on training and development into action. You’ll then be set to celebrate all levels of ringing, from rounds right the way up to the Society of Royal Cumberland Youths* and beyond.

*Other ringing societies also available

Top 5 Takeaways

  • Planning a striking competition? Open it up to all ringers, put on a picnic and make it a celebration!
  • If some of your ringers need more time to master a skill, consider putting on some intensive all-day courses with small numbers
  • Evolve your practices as your students progress
  • Have a target – give your ringers something to aim for
  • Does your tower have a set of handbells? Where’s the most unusual location they’ve been rung? Why not take them out for a day trip?
