Portsmouth wins 2016 Inter-District Striking Competition

Greg Jordan  Reports:
The inter-district 8 bell competition on 2nd July  and 4 districts entered. The changeable weather didn’t affect spirits and everyone undertook their practice and test pieces with gusto.

What a fabulous Inter-District 8 bell competition yesterday at New Alresford! We had 4 districts enter and here are the results:

*Drum Roll*

1st: Portsmouth, 89%, ringing Grandsire Triples and a peal speed of 3hrs 2mins

3rd: Christchurch and Southampton, 82%, ringing Grandsire Triples and a peal speed of 3hrs 7mins

4th: Andover, 75%, ringing Grandsire Triples and a peal speed of 3hrs 2m

Well done to all the teams and thank you to our Judges, Paul and Kate Flavell!
