This month’s Basingstoke District event is an outing to Alton. We will be ringing at All Saints Alton (6 bells, 6cwt tenor) from 11:15am – 12:15pm followed by a break for lunch (please make your own arrangements).
Following lunch we will ring at St. Lawrence Alton (8 bells, 18cwt tenor) from 2:30pm – 3:30pm.
As always ringers of all abilities are very welcome.
There will be no practice at Alton, St. Lawrence this Thursday, March 28th, as there is a concert in the church.
Also, due to another concert, the monthly 8 bell practice on Saturday 30th cannot take place at St. Lawrence either so this has been moved to Holybourne. Same time as usual 5.30 to 7.30pm.
Here are the Christmas Ringing details (Hopefully). Be ready for adjustment emails to arrive should I get it wrong! If I don’t see you before – I hope you all have an amazing Christmas.
