Mike Winterbourne Reports from the Monthly Practice at Hurstbourne Priors

The Hurstbourne Priors August practice was well attended in August with plenty of support from the organising tower St Mary Bourne and other district towers supplying competent ringers and those hoping to progress from – Kingsclere, Nether Wallop, Tangley and Woolton Hill.
Methods attempted and predominantly coming round were Grandsire Triples, Little Bob Major, Spliced Plain & Little Bob Major, Cambridge S Major and Superlative S Major. Now all we need is for the local pub to open again.
Usually on the 4th Thursday but check with Helen Thomas:

  • 10th November – Touches of Plain Bob Major
  • 8th December – Plain and Little Bob Major Spliced
