Roland has been ringing at Highclere for about three years, scored his first quarter in August 2014, and only 2 more quarters before scoring his first Peal on New Year’s Eve. He is a gentleman of mature years, so his attainment is the more remarkable. He will be elected a full member at the next QDM of the Andover District. He is the 29th and final Guild Member to score a “FisrtPeal2015” marking the tercentenary year of the first recorded peal.
