Easter ringing

rcant4Groups of bell towers form ringing districts and ringers from one tower often ring at another in the district especially when a particular tower is struggling.

Service ringing yesterday, Easter Sunday 20th April, enjoyed a special boost with the band enjoying some expert visiting ringers from other towers within the Alton & Petersfield district. In addition to our usual diet of call changes churchgoers were serenaded with some Reverse Canterbury Pleasure Place Minimus rung on four bells plus cover.
