Platinum Jubilee Ringing
A group of us met to ring for the service of thanksgiving for Her Majesty the Queens seventy years of service on the Friday morning. Very pleasant and well struck ringing from plain bob minor to call changes including the tune we all know as Queens of course. Find out more in our news section here.
Platinum Jubilee Quarter firsts
We have successfully rung a quarter peal for the Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth's Jubilee with a local band which included two people who were ringing their very first quarter peal. Both did not really expect to ring as the quarter was somewhat impromptu but the striking was pleasant and no real errors were recorded. See more in our news item for more details.
Post covid we have been developing our band bringing on our new learners whilst missing our stalwart Dick. Fortunately with help from other towers we have reached a milestone with plain hunt and bob doubles now being rung quite competently and our ringing up and down sounding really pleasant. It is nice to have a lovely bunch of people working together.
Whitacre's Mini Ring
Have you heard about the other ring of bells in Whitacre? Click this link to view the website to find out more about the second set of Whitacre bells especially if you are mini ring fanatic.
Have found some wax rubbings of the inscriptions taken of the bells before they were installed in 1977. A much easier task then when access was a lot easier. These rubbings were used as part of the advertising display used to raise money to complete the installation. They show the decorative part of the bells including some names and a image of a King George 1 two guinea gold piece which shows up especially clearly on the second bell. Find out more on the bell detail page.
