Under the leadership of Lucy Titchmarsh, 14 members of the 1st Shanklin Beavers, together with a few helpers, descended on Shanklin tower last Tuesday to try their hand at ringing.
Under the guidance of Revd Barry Downer, Shanklin Tower Captain Kieran Downer and Swanmore Captain Lexi Skeldon the group were given a tour of the tower and belfry and given the opportunity to try ringing a bell.
Whilst space was tight the group were split into two and whilst one group were in the tower the others attempted handbell ringing, with differing degrees of success in the Church!
Refreshments were served by the Shanklin team to round the evening off.
Thanks are due to all those who helped make the evening a success.
