A Successful Andover District Practice (Next One is 6th April)

Ros Brandwood Reports:

Another good turnout for the Andover District Practice (DP) on 7th March.  About 20 people took the opportunity to ring on the 10 bells at Whitchurch, with rounds and call changes on 10, right through to a touch of Grandsire Caters.  Thanks are due to ringing masters Helen Piper and Tim Pink for running an enjoyable and wide-ranging practice. Here’s hoping for similar support for the next DP at Longparish on 6th April (put the date in your diary now).
