Huge congratulations to Matthew Dancy on ringing his first peal at Selborne today. Matthew only turned 14 last month and has been learning to ring at All Saints, Basingstoke, Newnham and more recently at Bishopstoke. In the peal where his Mum, Margaret and Grandpa, Ian making Matthew the third generation of the family to ring. Grandma Ann was on hand too for band photos but declined to ring in the attempt.
Matthew rang really well throughout and only gave a hint of a teenage smile as the peal cane round. Let’s see if he can beat Grandpa Ian’s total of over 3300 – a little way to go!
