Regular 4th Saturday practice at St Peters Guernsey this morning

It was the last practice at St Peters before the District Striking Competition in April which is being held at St Peters so every other touch was the competition touch of Plain Bob Major.

Other things attempted, some successful other less so included Single Oxford Bob Triples, St Simons Bob Triples , spliced Plain and Little Bob and spliced Plain Bob and Grandsire. We haven’t yet reached the level that St Peters was at when I learned to ring there 20 years ago when it was not unusual to finish a Friday evening practice with Surprise Major but we are heading in the right direction.

Channel Islands Bellringing Mash-Up (Video)

Deb Baker spotted this gem on YouTube. Superb call changes on the bells of the Channel Islands. The notes on the video itself read:

Featuring the bells of Jersey, Guernsey & Alderney.
