Ryde Steps Back in Time…

All Saints’ Church, Ryde, was the venue for a visit from the Vectis 1940s Vintage group.

After a talk in the ringing room about bells and bell ringing locally and Island-wide, particularly about what occurred during the war years, the group were taken up to the parapet for some spectacular sites of the Island and mainland coastline.

Following the descent, some of whom found it more onerous than they first thought, a tea was served in the Church Hall, which also had a 1940s feel to it, which had been set out with an exhibition of the history of Ryde tower from 1886.

A big thank you is due to all Ryde ringers for their contributions of help and cake.
