Some of the Sunday congregation was good enough to comment favourably about the quarter peal. Readers may remember we last rang half muffled for the September 11th tragedy and some may recall the beautiful but unusual noise the bells make when half the notes are dulled in volume by leather straps.
A few Whitacre ringers went on the annual Arley tower outing which rang at six towers around Ashby-de-la-Zouch. All had an excellent day rounded off by a loud bonfire party in the evening.
Of course we are still desperately short of ringers and only rang for Remembrance Sunday because the Arley ringers helped out again. Anyone interested in starting this fascinating exercise is welcome to join us every Thursday evening from 8pm.
