St Saviour’s Church bell ringing team, under the guidance of Tower Captain Kieran Downer, held a taster session at the church on Saturday (27th January) for the Shanklin Scout troupe.
The group had a go at backstroke, then rounds at backstroke. After that they went up to see the bells and saw how they work.
Back down in the church, call changes on handbells were rung and refreshments were laid on to help sustain the group in their efforts.
Like the Scouts and Cubs, Shanklin will always ‘Be Prepared’ with tea and cake!
Some of the group getting to grips with handbell ringing!
Shanklin Scout group and ringers pose for a memory of the occasion.
