If you run a 6 bell tower the chances to ring major only occur if you make the effort to get to suitable practices. Chris Pack has been using the monthly 8 bell practice at Hurstbourne Priors to get his Yorkshire up to speed. This evening Chris managed, with friends, to ring a quarter of Yorkshire at Highclere.

Bruce Purvis Reports:
Roland has been ringing at Highclere for about three years, scored his first quarter in August 2014, and only 2 more quarters before scoring his first Peal on New Year’s Eve. He is a gentleman of mature years, so his attainment is the more remarkable. He will be elected a full member at the next QDM of the Andover District. He is the 29th and final Guild Member to score a “FisrtPeal2015” marking the tercentenary year of the first recorded peal.

Mostly, as it is brought over from the current Guild website, archive material is filed in the archive… but this edition of the Guild News from 2002 has so many familiar faces and places in it that here it is in the news stream. [More Newsletters here]
