Winchester District Hosts Youth Practice

On Sunday February 21st young ringers from the Districts of Winchester, Basingstoke and Christchurch and Southampton met up at Bishopstoke to  enjoy an afternoon of ringing together.

The aim of the afternoon was to improve striking in rounds and it was exciting to hear it getting better and better as the session progressed.

Some were keen to practise plain hunting, which went very well  and one  of the girls made a jolly good attempt at ringing it for the first time.

There were plain courses and touches of Grandsire doubles and Plain Bob doubles with young ringers inside and on the treble and also rounds on all ten bells.

Many thanks to Bishopstoke for the use of the lovely bells and to Allen Guille for very patiently waiting to lock up while we finished our well earned chocolate cake and drinks.

  1. Looks like everyone had a good time then and made some good progress. It’s great for ringers and ringing when we pool valuable resources. Excellent and well done all 🙂
