“…please thank everyone who rang on Sunday afternoon: the sound was glorious”
This feedback was from the vicar at St Michael’s Southampton about the ringing for the surprise royal practice which took place yesterday.
Many thanks to all those who made it, it was a successful afternoon with two decent half courses of Bristol Royal achieved along with Cambridge, Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. A few people ringing things for the first ever time which is fantastic!
I will be in touch soon about the next practice, but the suggested date is Sunday 30th October.
I’m delighted to say we have now exceeded the minimum number required, and therefore the surprise royal practice will be going ahead this Sunday :-).

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.
