Rebecca Webb Reports from the Stedman Doubles Special Practice

What a fantastic practice we had today of Stedman Doubles held at Herriard

The four students were at all different levels and by the end of the morning the students were all ringing Stedman Doubles 120 and all ringing together. 
The students came from Alton, Basingstoke and Bishopstoke.
This amazing progression was achieved by some fantastic helpers who travelled from Alton, Basingstoke, Overton, Sherfield-on-Loddon and Kingsclere.
Thank you to everyone for making today such a success.

There will instead be two practices a week at Alton, All Saint’s. 7.30 to 9.00pm on Tuesday as normal and now 7.30 to 9.00pm on Thursday as well.
