A Devon Peal aka 60 on thirds was rung before the carol service this afternoon. Conducted by Chris, the players were Bob, Janice, Keith, Martin, Nigel and Will,
First Sunday of the month means ringing for service at Chawton. Today we (Bethany, Bob, Chris, Janet, Janice and Keith) rang call changes combined with ringing up and down in threes.
Tomorrow will see the first Chawton practice in preparation for a full range of ringing in Chawton and Bentworth throughout December.
Over the last few weeks Chawton and Bentworth have joined forces, coming together for Sunday ringing and for Monday practices and this has proved greatly beneficial to both bands.
On Monday this week the practice was held in Chawton. Ten people turned up and we rang call changes, plain hunt, plain bob minimus, plain bob doubles and grandsire.
Excellent practice, admirably led by Chris Hurley from Bentworth.
Well, the bells were rung to mark the Wedding of Ophelia Hunter and William Turner on Saturday and again for service this morning but I’m afraid that’s the best I can say about it. A rare visit to the ringing chamber by two of the leading lights of Chawton’s “old” band, Les and Ann Human, enriched the atmosphere this morning.
Andy, Bob, Judy, Liz, Matt and Mike rang Call Changes and Plain Bob Doubles to celebrate the Wedding of Jemma Harris and Richard Larcombe this afternoon.
On Saturday we decided to hold a practice this evening and tonight Bethany, Bob, Imogen and Janice practised ringing up and down in peal and Bethany, Imogen and Janice all conducted full circle changes.
The Greyfriar benefitted from the revival afterwards and we met up with Martin and Janet.
Bethany, Bob, Chris, Janice, Keith and Rachel rang Call Changes for the wedding of Francesca Gill and Matthew Johnson this afternoon.
