Ringing cancellations due to COVID-19

Coronavirus: UK ringing should now be cancelled

The UK government has advised against all unnecessary social contact with immediate effect. The Prime Minister advised in a press conference of 16th March that now is the time for everyone to stop non-essential contact with others and to stop all unnecessary travel.

The Central Council has released a statement in response to the UK government. They advise that If you haven’t already decided to cancel ringing activities, it seems that now is the time to do so. The Ringing World agrees with this statement. It is hard to interpret the government’s guidance in any way other than that all planned ringing activities in the UK should now cease.

Alton, St. Laurence, All Saints and Holybourne – all ringing suspended.

12-bell Practice – Hursley – Friday 27th April

Hursley’s 4th Friday of the month 12 Bell practice is this week – Friday 27th. Anyone wishing to ring on 12 Bells is welcome to come along and join us. Hopefully we’ll be able to ring some or all of Cambridge, Yorkshire, Bristol Max, Grandsire and Stedman Cinques. But, as usual what we ring will depend on who comes along; so anything from rounds and call changes to Bristol Max.

If you can’t make this week’s practice, you’ll always be welcome any Friday night.

Surprise Royal Practices continue – 4th Sunday of the Month – sign up here!

Hi all,
Firstly many thanks to all those who completed the feedback. It was very useful! What it did show was there was still a strong desire for practices to be continued, so after my summer off I am back to get things running again!
To make these practices as viable as possible, I am going to aim to start again in October, to allow people sufficient notice. I will advertise the next 4 practices, and using a Doodle poll, assess whether they are viable or not. All practices are on the 4th Sunday afternoon of the month. This still seems the best time for most people at present.
Please click the following link to indicate your availability;
The intention for locations would be;
22/10 – Bishopstoke
26/11 – North Stoneham
28/01 – St Mary’s, Southampton
25/02 – Hursley
I will update you towards the end of this month, so please now get signing up. Any comments/suggestion welcome, as always!
Thanks,
Southampton

**CONFIRMED Surprise Royal Practice Sunday May 28th 2pm

The Surprise Royal practice will be going ahead this SUNDAY, 28th May, 14:00-15:30 at Hursley. 

Note the start time is very 2pm as I know previously there has been some confusion

Special methods are CambridgeYorkshireLincolnshire and Pudsey with London/Bristol if numbers allow.

Please spread the word to those likely to attend.

Invitation to ring at Hursley on Friday 26th May

The next open 12-bell practice at All Saints’, Hursley, should be this
Friday, 26th May, at 7.30 p.m. However, as it is a bank holiday, many of our
local ringers are away. Visitors are still, of course, most welcome to join
us but it is unlikely that we will have enough to ring on 12-bells.

There is an “Ale and Cider Evening” in the Dolphin this Friday and so, if
this does not appeal, visitors may prefer the King’s Head for the aprés
clash.

Best wishes, Tony Smith
