Whilst the bells were not being rung the group had great fun going mainly to Kingsbury to practice ringing eight. We developed our skills of Kent and Plain Bob on eight and achieved quite presentable striking by the time the six at Whitacre became ringable again.
The group has also been out on another trip to the southern end of Warwickshire. We had nice weather most of the day but had hail, snow, rain and sunshine during our lunchtime meal in the pub. The bets ring of the day had to be at Brailes which was a heavy ring of six. They are the third heaviest in Britain, three times heavier than at Whitacre. The total weight revolving in the tower makes this tower really sway noticeably which makes the bells very difficult to ring but they sounded superb.
We will try to ring something special for Easter Sunday and as ever would love to welcome new recruits. Why not come and try the newest view of the church.
