The Associate Rector/Vicar at Blackmoor, Alice Wood, delivered Easter cards to all the houses in the local area last week. In her message Alice said that she hoped, as it was also April Fools Day, there would be no shenanigans by the choir or bell ringers on Easter Sunday.
I don’t know about the choir, but the ringers couldn’t let an opportunity like that go passed unchallenged. So we rang backwards rounds and call changes, backwards Plain Hunt a very nice touch of April Day and then finished with some firing.
I suspect that no-one outside the ringing chamber had any idea of what we were doing and, when it came to the firing, probably thought that it was quite normal for us, but we had fun.
Hope you all had a great weekend, Valerie
