A&P: Practices cancelled at the following towers until further notice

Following guidance received today the following towers have ceased all ringing until further notice in an effort to reduce the spread of COVID19:

Alton (All towers), Blackmoor, Bramshott, Buriton, Froxfield, Hawkley, Holybourne, Selborne, Steep, Warnford and West Meon

Other towers will be added once confirmation is received that they are also cancelling their ringing activities

Hope to see you all soon and stay well…

A&P: Practice cancelled at Buriton – 18th March 2020

Dear all,

In view of the government’s advice that everyone should avoid all non-essential social contact, I have decided that this Wednesday’s (March 18) practice should not go ahead with a view to possibly following the decision of other District towers and cancelling all ringing until further notice.

A&P: Practice cancelled at Bramshott – 2nd March 2020

Dear All,
I am afraid that we are unable to have a ringing practice at Bramshott on Monday 2nd March.
We have just been informed that the stone work repairs in the chancel are being carried out all next week. Scaffolding is to be erected in the chancel on Monday morning, close to the ringing area, and we have been advised, for safety reasons, to curtail ringing until the work is complete and scaffolding removed.
Hopefully this should be done within the week – so practices will resume on Monday 9th March 7.30 to 9 pm.
As always, visitors are most welcome.
If there is any further delay with the masonry work, I will, of course, let you all know.
Many thanks.
Di Hart,
Tower Captain

A&P: Buriton practices cancelled on 26th February and 4th March

There will be no practice at Buriton on Wednesday 26th February it being Ash Wednesday when there will be a Service in Church at 7.30pm.
The following Wednesday, 4th March, there will again be no practice as we will then be holding our AGM.
Thereafter we will be practising normally when all will once again be most welcome.
