Update from the Elizabeth College Ringers (Guernsey)

Brilliant practice with Elizabeth College boys!

Duncan announced at the beginning of today’s practice that he had a plan. He wanted an all boys band to ring one course of plain hunt then add something at the end of it. What he meant was one lead of Plain Bob Doubles. Olivia was included as an honorary boy and was the only one of the band who knew PB doubles. Will had once or twice been guided through a plain course but none of the others had any idea what it was all about. The tenor ringer had never really tried covering before and the treble ringer had never tried ringing to a method. There were only 3 of us to stand behind and guide.

The first couple of attempts weren’t too bad and we progressed a little beyond one lead each time. The last attempt of the day was a triumph; we got to the end of a plain course. It was a bit lumpy but I’ve heard much worse.

The boys were delighted. It was lovely to see that even those who usually mess around all the time were becoming more serious and really trying.

It won’t be long before they’ll be way ahead of me!
