Doubles Daytime Practice rides again

Seventeen ringers came to this morning’s doubles daytime practice at Bletchingdon, including eight students aiming to improve their trebling, tenoring and ringing inside to doubles.

We welcomed new helpers Martin and Sue from Bodicote, Jane from Marston as well as Sally, Ruth, Barbara and Dan to their first daytime doubles practice.

After Martin led up the raise on six, we rattled through some plain courses of Plain Bob Doubles and Grandsire Doubles for Sally, Barbara, Sally, Gerald and Dan helped by standers. Sally got some good practice at trebling to Grandsire and Plain Bob Doubles.

Ala, Judith and Ruth rang touches of Plain Bob Doubles, Judith and Ala in the same band for one touch. Several of our students also trebled to doubles methods, including Barbara and Gerald and most students rang covering tenor.

Finally, the helpers rang a touch of Plain Bob Minor before we lowered on six, led down by Michael.

Many thanks to our students who brought tea, coffee, cakes and biscuits for our helpers.

A really productive practice, very many thanks to our helpers.
Next practice is likely to be the week after Easter and I hope that ringers who haven’t been able to make one or more of the last practices will be able to join us.
