PEAL AT RYDE

If you fancy sitting out in the cold at Fiveways in Ryde this afternoon(covered shelter facing All Saints’) a Peal (not sure what’s being rung) will begin between 2.30 – 3.00pm  (Saturday, 27th February).

Organised by Roy Le Marechal, this should sound really lovely across Ryde  especially if you are out  shopping in the nearby High Street. There are some Island ringers with the Mainland visitors in the team and I will post further information once I know the outcome.

Evensong at 6.30. This will be a full choral evensong .

All are welcome to the ringing and the service. Please come for an afternoon of friendship and enjoyment.

The Queen Writes to the Ringers at Ryde and Chale, Isle of Wight, Nov 2015

They rang their bells at Ryde and Chale, they told the Queen, she replied!
Letter to Ryde Ringers from the Queen Nov 2015

Taken after the ringing for the Queen's Longest Reign event on September 9th at St Andrew's Church, Chale, which I organised to enable them to join in the celebrations. The letter from Buckingham Palace is acknowledgment of that together with Ryde's quarter peal effort, for which I have no pictorial record, although it is recorded on Bellboard.
