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.

Hinton practices throughout August to be held at Sopley.

Dear Ringers,

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).

St. John’s, Surrey Road, Bournemouth: Sunday mornings service ringing CANCELLED throughout August. Practices continue as usual.

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.
