March 28th practice cancelled at Alton, St. Lawrence, and this month’s 8 bell practice moved to Holybourne

Hello all
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.
Thanks, Valerie

November 8 bell practice at Alton St. Lawrence cancelled

Due to a 5pm wedding at Holybourne and a concert at St. Lawrence, it has become necessary to cancel the November 24th eight bell practice.

As everyone will be busy between Christmas and New Year we have decided to restart the Alton, St. Lawrence monthly eight bell practices again on January 26th.

Hope to see you then.

8 bell practice – Saturday June 30th – 5.30 to 7.30pm

Don’t forget there is an 8 bell practice at Alton, St. Lawrence this Saturday (June 30th) from 5.30 to 7.30pm. A perfect opportunity to catch up on those methods that you may not always have enough ringers for in your home tower.
Several of the Alton ringers, and other regular attendees, will be away this weekend so Roger has volunteered to run it. He’d love to see you there.
Many thanks, Valerie
