Ringing Practice 11th November 2019

Productive practice this evening. Early session for new learner, Peter with the 4th tied.
After removing the muffles from the remaining bells, and raising the front 6, we spent some useful refresh time in call changes going through the way in which calls are made and how bells slow or speed up according to the change in position.
Very successful long-place Mexican wave followed by a new exercise ringing Twinkle, twinkle little star which is a great way of honing bell control with a purpose.
The Castle provided the usual warm welcome for a post-practice debriefing.

Service of Remembrance 2019

Brilliant to hear all 8 bells ringing half muffled in a mark of respect to those who gave their lives in conflicts past. The ringers were:
Duncan, Jeremy, Stephanie, Louise, Wendy, Graham and Sue with welcome help from Vinni and Dave from Wargrave.
Words of appreciation were received as we mingled in the bright November sunshine after the service.

Sunday Ringing 4 Aug 2019

Good turnout from the team this Sunday meant we were able to make very good use of a welcome visitor to ring all 8 bells for 11 o’clock service.
Jez joined us from Cambridgeshire, strengthening the band to enable us to give St Helens Doubles a spin, and to ring some respectable rounds and call-changes on the 8.
Duncan, Graham, Keith, Jeremy, Steph, Sue & Wendy.
