In August I posted a picture that had been sent to me by Linda Bulpitt, Froyle’s Tower Captain, which showed an entry written on their tower wall recording the firing of the bells for VJ day.
Above is the addition they made to the wall after ringing to mark the Centenary of the Armistice.
Froyle has a wall in their tower where all important information was, and is, written. Whilst they may not have anything recorded there about WW1 ringing, they do have this record of the bells being fired in VJ Day in 1945. Only 3 ringers named though, perhaps they fired 2 bells each.
Also apparently, there is a record of snow in 1904, in June!! Somewhat different to June of this year then.
Linda Bulpitt has assured me that they will be adding to the wall when they ring at 11.00am and 7.05pm on November 11th.
Sundays: 2nd & 3rd, 10.30am, 4th 6.00pm
Practices: Friday (6.30-7.30 but contact secretary)
Please join us for a general practice at Froyle on Saturday May 13th, ringing is from rounds upwards so everyone is welcome. Whether you are a beginner or have been ringing for donkeys years, we would love to see you.
If it’s anything like the practice at Selborne in March, then it will be a huge success.
Thank you. Valerie
