Michael Bubb Reports on a first for everyone in a Quarter Peal at Vale, Guernsey:
Our quarter peal on 14th March as a celebration of Harry White’s 80th birthday included Horsley. Austrey, St Ignatius and St Thomas, variations which we had not rung in a quarter peal in the past. With a little poetic licence the methods and variations spelt out Harry White 80.
Have fun see what names you can come up with ringing methods and variations in a quarter. Nothing rude though!
