Penny learnt to ring in 1989 at St John's Brisbane and was taught by local ringer Reg Toze. She was introduced to ringing by a friend when she went along to watch one evening and ended up hooked by the end of the practice! Since then she has rung over 700 peals.
What does the Assistant Secretary do?
The Assistant Secretary works closely with the Hon Sec to help with the administration of the Society. Commonly this involves keeping membership lists up-to-date and making the Society's social events work by booking people, venues and collecting money. The assistant secretary is often to be found persuading people to come to an event, pressing people to confirm their intentions and pay their money!
