There will also be no practice on 4th April, same reason.

We will be back to normal next Wednesday March 13th when all will be welcome as usual.
There will be no practice at Blackmoor this Friday, March 1st, because the snow levels at the beginning of February meant we couldn’t actually get to the pub, and we had to postpone our AGM.
We would love to see you at any other time.
Many thanks, Valerie
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.

would like to apply for one of these attempts please contact the Tower

draw at the AGM to allocate attempts if necessary.

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.
