Striking novices

Chawton entered the Winchester & Portsmouth Guild striking competition for the first time today, competing with some of the best bands in the county,  ringing call changes in the 6-bell competition. It was a fairly nerve-wracking experience for a novice band but we all pulled together, got through it and triumphantly achieved fifth place.

Note the “competing with” above, not “competing against”. We were greatly assisted during the run up to the match by the Alton band who took fourth place and wouldn’t have done nearly so well without their help.
