Swanmore School Learn the Ropes

On Tuesday morning (24th April) Haylands Primary School at Swanmore, Ryde, visited St Michael’s Church, for a look to see how bells are rung and were given a tour of the tower.

Some 56 year-one children with their teachers were split into four groups and were guided by Tower Captain Lexi Skeldon together with Kieran Downer, Jan Hookey and John Stock on hand to help with ringing and teaching about the church and its working bells. All of the group took a bell to have a go at ringing backstroke, some more successfully than others!

An enjoyable morning was had by all with a darkened room required for the helpers to recover afterwards!
