Whilst a Quarter Peal of Grandsire Doubles would not normally be Headline News, and ringing for weddings is taking place in many of our towers on summer Saturdays, this was ringing intended to be heard at the reception.
Maybe the choice of secular wedding venues need not rule out having Tower bells for your wedding!
For the ringers, this also creates the possibility of being paid for ringing Quarter Peals from them to time… not a bad idea, that!
