On Saturday 1st October, ringers across the Portsmouth District held their annual quarter peal day as part of the district’s quarter peal fortnight.
Six quarters were attempted on Saturday with 100% success, including Bristol and London surprise major, Grandsire doubles, Grandsire triples, plain bob doubles and Cambridge surprise minor.
The successful day was rounded off with a curry at Cafe Tusk in Fareham.
Special congratulations go to Greg Painter (first QP inside) and Adam Pym (first QP in Bristol major) and thanks to the conductors Edd Colliss, Ian Carey, Ben Carey and David Mattingley.
Three other QPs have been rung in the district so far as part of QP fortnight. Purbrook deserves a special mention as the 50th QP was rung on the bells and dedicated to the late tower captain Roy Grayson who passed away last November.
