Ring out the January blues with a course of Plain Hunting

Many thanks to Alverstoke Tower for the invitation to an insight into Plain Hunting. A special thanks to Lizzie Hough who arranged the day and all the willing helpers who made the day possible including the Church Wardens for arranging refreshments.

The day started with a theory session explaining the principle of Plain Hunting and the procedures to be followed when in the Tower. It was then time to climb the many steps to the ringing floor and attempt to put the theory into practice. With a band of steady ringers in place 2 by 2 we joined in to ring. For those not actually ringing it was suggested they focus on a specific bell and follow the cycle from behind. After we each had a couple of rings we returned to the church for a break and coffee.

We returned to the Tower where we again joined the band for further practice. All those attended appreciated the time and effort put in by the helpers which made the day possible and most enjoyable.

Many Thanks
Malcolm & Debbie
