Guild Inter-Tower Striking Competition Report 2019

The Guild 6-Bell Inter-Tower competition was held this year on 18th May at Wickham with 4 tower teams and a scratch band hotly contesting the trophy.

Congratulations to Portsmouth Cathedral on winning the competition which was judged by Martin Rice from Newbury and Mark Robins from Hungerford.

The weather was kind to us, overcast but dry, and the setting idyllic for a pleasant morning sitting in the churchyard listening to some fine ringing.

My thanks go to the local band and clergy for the use of the bells, The Portsmouth District committee for their assistance with organisation, the Judges and to Lynne Jordan for providing much needed refreshments.
