  1. Hello …’though I’m not a District Officer, I’m uncertain about some of this info…where’s it come from please? E.g. 8-bell Striking Contest …Maundy Thursday?? Unlikely. Freshwater for Guild AGM – again unlikely (as tower unsafe/no ringing currently) – it MIGHT have changed but not heard that is has. Please let me know if I can assist in any way.

  2. To avoid any confusion … the date for the I.W. 8 bell at Brighstone is Sat 13th April; and since we are talking “8 bell at Brighstone”, please can we update the graphic at the top of the Isle of Wight pages to show Brighstone as having 8 bells? The Guild AGM is indeed at Freshwater and Inter-District at Brighstone … it is the I.W. Festival that w/e and the Guild stuck with that date, but it gives mainlanders the option of avoiding Newport by travelling through Lymington (assuming it isn’t breezy and those ferries get cancelled).
