The new committee has been “finding its feet” this year and been finding a balance with work commitments. This has sadly resulted in the resignation of Kieran Downer and Lexi Skeldon due also in part to living on the Isle of Wight.

The committee has had a couple of meetings this past year and went on a training course looking at the bells of East Tytherley, West Tytherley and Lockerley. Instruction was given by Hugh Routh and the committee is hugely grateful for his time, enthusiasm and continued support, it is much appreciated.

The committee has carried out the following tower inspections  this year:-

All Saints, Basingstoke – Augmentation to 10 with the addition of a new treble

All Saints, Houghton – Two of the old three now hung on deadstocks and set up for chiming. Installation of a new frame and a new light ring of six installed

St Andrew, Sherborne-St-John – Rebushing of four clappers and the installation of a wooden shaft to the tenor clapper.

St Stephen, Baughurst – Rebushing the clappers of the four bells in the lower frame

St Mary, Breamore – Clappers rebushed, bearings serviced and the frame repainted

St Mary & All Saints, Droxford – Inspect on general condition prior to being rung for a wedding after a time of being silent.
