Bell Ringing 22nd July

Dear Villagers
On Monday, July 22nd at 2pm we have a band of ringers who will ring a peal on our bells. They are a group of ringers who visit Lundy each year to ring at St. Helena’s church on the island. Before they go they like to ring at a church on the mainland and this year we have the privilege.
The band coming will consist of 2 from Lancashire and others from London, Limerick and Munich. Andrew, the tower captain of Minehead, who comes to our practice night to help us progress, is also joining them.
They will be ringing 5000 changes of a method called Uxbridge Surprise Major, a musical arrangement which will last about 3 hours.
Listen to these professional ringers, our bells are a delight to hear, and if you feel inspired your local band meets on Thursdays at 7.30pm. You will be most welcome.
Elisabeth Powls Tower Captain
