Turns out to be a bit of a learner evening tonight which was lovely. New recruit Issy came up for the first time and joined Ruby in our younger learners band whilst Dave came over from Shustoke to have a go on different bells. Dave holds the colander of being the last ringer to be taught to handle a bell by Dick Dale. In actual fact we had a busy evening even if we only rang a course of plain bob and grandsire doubles and the light warm evening makes it weather that Dick would have almost considered too hot to ring in!
A group of us met to celebrate the dedication of Her Majesty the Queen and rang to remind people of the service starting at Westminster this morning. David and Anne, Mike, Steve, Hazel, Quentin and Xavier all participated in ringing rounds and call changes - including the tune Queens of course - as well as plain bob minor and grandsire doubles.
