Arreton Ringer’s First Quarter Peal

Arreton ringer Gerry Faulkner romped through his first ever quarter peal at St George’s Church, Arreton, on Sunday.

Gerry covered for the quarter peal, which was rung ahead of St George’s Day on Monday for the Church’s Patronal Festival, and is the first to be rung there since August 2016, so a very special event by local ringers.

After 13 years of being a ringer he was finally persuaded to take the plunge and is another one of our Island band of senior ringers to achieve that.

We congratulate him most warmly on the achievement and hope this will be the first of yet more to come!
