Southampton – Ringing Resumes Jan 7th

Hi all,
There is no ringing in Southampton now until the new year.
The nature of our local band is that most of us go away from Southampton to see family or friends over the festive period meaning we rarely have enough remaining ringers in the city for sessions to go ahead.
The next ringing with be Sunday 7th January at Bitterne Park.
The next practice will be Monday 8th January at St Mike’s.
On behalf of the SCR committee, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!
Best wishes,
Vice-Master and Steeple Keeper.
