I will be in touch soon about the next practice, but the suggested date is Sunday 30th October.

Dear all,

Please let me know ASAP if you are free and hoping to attend this months Surprise Royal practice at Hursley on Sunday 24th July 14:00 – 15:30.

We don’t currently have enough people signed up for a practice to be viable, we are still needing at least another 5 to confirm, however hopefully with this email a few more people might be available.

If by Wednesday I don’t have at least 15 people confirmed, then I propose to ring a quarter peal instead (Cambridge or Yorkshire)- the 10 I currently have down to attend the practice will be offered ropes first.

Either way I will confirm by email to this list on Wednesday.

Kind Regards,

Video and writeup from the First Guild Surprise Royal Practice – October 2015

The first new Guild surprise royal practice took place this afternoon at St Michael’s Southampton. Attended by 16 members from across the guild this was a really promising start with all those who attended having enjoyed the practice, and many having found this opportunity very useful.

The focus methods for this first practice were Cambridge and London No3, both of which were rung successfully multiple times. We managed 3 separate lots of London, including a very successful whole course! It’s not very often, if at all, people get the chance to ring a whole courses of methods such as London Royal. The practice also featured a good amount of Cambridge and Yorkshire Royal, all of which proved useful to those attending. 

Hopefully this positive start can generate enthusiasm to keep this practice going, and hopefully over the next few months it will continue to gain momentum and fill that gap in the Guild ringing schedules.

Thanks to all those who attended this afternoon, and watch this space for details of the November practice!
