The peal was arranged by Michael Church. The ringers are all from St Michael’s Basingstoke. Michael arranged the peal as he and the first pealers were keen to get in on “FirstPeal2015“.
The Initial plan was to ring Plain Bob Minor but Rebecca was keen to ring her first peal with her husband Richard who could only reliably cover, hence Doubles. After a nervous start she was fine. Likewise Steve Lutener who was just about rock solid after the first few extents. Rebecca is already enthusiastic about another peal and I have said I would be happy to ring something with her in the new year.
