Ambrosden BP report

On Friday 4th March Ambrosden hosted a Branch Practice. The bells hadn’t been rung for some time (there is currently only one ringer), but 9 members of the branch (from 5 branch towers) met together to remind the locals there are bells. The vicar popped in on his way home – he had said to his wife earlier that evening that he missed hearing the bells, and arrived home to hear us ringing 🙂

We rang call changes on 6 and 8, Plain Bob Doubles, Grandsire Doubles and plain courses of Reverse Canterbury (following a request).

Feb’11 Triples & Major Practice report

Sadly only 5 people turned up at the February Triples & Major practice so we only rang Doubles and, following a request, Stedman Minimus! I would really like to encourage more people to attend to make these practices useful for everyone.
