Town Church Guernsey back to ringing QPs and a Barbecue to celebrate

Not sure whether you call a QP attempt on Friday, Sunday and Monday normal service resumed but that is what Duncan organised for his and our return to some semblance of normality.

Friday was the first doubles attempt for the new 3 month cycle of methods so we thought we’d try a simple one; Double Bob Minor. What could go wrong? Well actually what could go right? We started with hopes of a whole quarter of double bob but plan B was always to ring the 540 then change to plain bob. But there were so many trips that Duncan missed the end of the 540 and simply couldn’t control us for 720 changes so we had to abandon it. It was a real shame because it wasn’t a good start to our renewed enthusiasm.

But things got better. Despite misgivings about singles Judith agreed to ring inside to Plain Bob Minor on Sunday and all went well. And the 9am on Monday quarter of Grandsire Doubles was a real treat.

This was followed by Duncan’s barbecue at his new house where a really good time was had by all. Everyone was given a tour of the house then Evelyn gave a demonstration of the finer techniques of trampolining.  Thank you Duncan. Great to see your house and good to be back ringing quarters.
