As there is a Burns Night event taking place in the village hall next door, we have been asked not to ring at Blackmoor on January 25th. We are, however, planning to have a practice on Thursday 24th instead which you are welcome to join us for.
There will be no practice on February 1st either as it the date of our annual dinner and meeting.
You are always welcome to join us for any other practice night.
There will be no ringing at St. John’s, Bournemouth on Sunday 20th January. This is due to a joint service being held at St. Michael’s.
Normal ringing times will resume after this.
There will be no practice at Romsey Abbey on Wednesday 23rd January as we are holding our AGM.
Please note that there will be NO practice at Hursley on Friday 1st
February as the ringers are holding their AGM.
We hope to have 6 or 7 peal attempts at Hursley between October 2019 and
April 2020, some of which will be allocated to visiting bands. If anyone
would like to apply for one of these attempts please contact the Tower
Secretary, Christine Hill, by 25 January. Contact can be made directly
or via the Hursley website
https://www.pealbase.co.uk/hursley/code/contact.php . There will be a
draw at the AGM to allocate attempts if necessary.
Sadly this evening’s practice at 7:30pm-9:00pm with Tim Kettle at St. Peter’s has had to be cancelled due to lack of ringers. We hope to see everybody in full attendance next week.
For those still wishing to ring this evening, there will be a practice at St. Peter & Paul, Ringwood at 7:45pm until 9:15pm. (New ringers from 7:15pm until 7:45pm)

I regret to say that we will not be holding a practice at Buriton this week due to a lack of numbers. You will all be welcome to join us at any other Wednesday evening practice.
Due to a 5pm wedding at Holybourne and a concert at St. Lawrence, it has become necessary to cancel the November 24th eight bell practice.
As everyone will be busy between Christmas and New Year we have decided to restart the Alton, St. Lawrence monthly eight bell practices again on January 26th.
Hope to see you then.
Just to let you know there will be no ringing practice at St. Mary’s, Bramshott next Monday 5th November.
Practices will resume on Monday 12th November at 7.30 pm.
As always – visitors are most welcome!
All good wishes,
Due to an All Souls service being held in the church from 7pm, there will be no practice at Blackmoor on Friday November 2nd. Instead there will be a half muffled quarter peal rung beforehand.
Anyone wishing to visit will be most welcome on any other Friday.
There wil be no service ringing at Ringwood on Sunday 7th October 2018, due to a shortage of numbers this week.
Why not head to and visit a different tower and help out a fellow band, such as the heavy ring of 8 St. Peter’s Bournemouth, or a very light 6 at Sacred Heart. Do check the online calendar for notices before your journey though.
Due to the Alresford fair on October 11th. I have decided to cancel the Ropley practice, it was due to be held at Old Alresford. This will save a three mile detour.
Dear St. Peter’s Thursday night ringers,
Due to a concert being held within the church, there will be no practice at St. Peter’s Bournemouth, on Thursday 4th October 2018 at 7:30pm.
The following Thursday (11th October), Tim Kettle will be away, but practice night will still go ahead. Please let the tower secretary, Romy, know whether or not you are able to attend.

There will be no general service ringing before Evensong this Sunday (16th September 2018). This is due to a pre-arranged quarter-peal that will be taking place, in place of usual service ringing.
The morning service ringing will take place as is usual.

There will be no 8 bell practice at Hurstbourne Priors next Thursday, 23rd August, as it’s holiday season.
Hope to see you all there on Thursday 27th September.
Helen and Roger
Due to holidays etc. it has been decided to cancel this month’s 8 bell practice at Alton St. Lawrence.
We will start again on September 29th.
Sorry for any disappointment.
Throughout the remainder of August 2018, all Tuesday evening practices (7:30pm-9:00pm) usually held at Hinton, will instead be held at Sopley (7:30pm-9:00pm).
This is due to summer holidays/lack of ringers at Hinton to unlock etc, vs. more space/bells at Sopley, should any other tower bands and visiting ringers wish to come and join the Tuesday night practice. Everything from rounds and call changes upwards, to minor methods.
There will be learners from 6:45pm, but otherwise, the usual time of 7:30pm for everybody else. This is usually followed by drinks at The Woolpack afterwards.
All are welcome.
For more information please contact David Lay (Sopley Tower Captain)
Or Robin & Gill Wilson (Hinton Tower Captains)
(For those that don’t know, Hinton and Sopley ‘share’ their towers. Hinton practices are USUALLY on 2nd and 4th Tuesdays, alternating with Sopley on 1st, 3rd and 5th Tuesdays).
Due to lack of ringers Thursday Practices at Netley on 2nd and 9th August have been cancelled.
Normal practice will be resumed on Thursday 16th August, hopefully with some support from our friends, all welcome.
There will be NO morning service ringing at St. John’s, Surrey Road during the month of August.
However, Tuesday night practices will continue to take place as usual from 7.30 – 9, except for the 14th August, which is Quarter-Peal Evening!
Perhaps you have more time in August? Or, you want extra practice with a new method, then come and try us out.
As previously mentioned, Tuesday 14th August is QP night. Want to have a go at Grandsire Triples or Bob Triples ? Now is your chance!! Please let me know if you would like a rope.
