We here on the Isle of Wight offer our hearty congratulations to Tristan Allen on achieving his first ever peal on Saturday at the age of 13 years and 11 months. He started ringing at 5 so has worked hard to get this.
Joining him in the band were Uncle Kieran Downer, who conducted, and Grandfather Barry Downer and Great-uncle Rodney Downer. Well done Tristan – the first of many I feel!
