The trainee bell ringing band at St Peter’s currently consists of Roger Noble (Steeple Keeper), Jenny Eades (Deputy Tower Captain), Lindy Brett, Ali Griffin, Emily Griffin, Nick Eades and David Eades. We are supported in ringing for special services by Keith Poulton of St Peter’s, by Trisha Halloran and by more experienced ringers from St Michael’s and Christ Church. The average age is NOT 14 but we do have a 13 and a 20 year old!
We are aiming to have a practice at St Peter’s about once a month, on a Thursday evening from 7 to 8.15. We rang for the Carol Service on December 20th and on Christmas Day and will next ring on Easter Sunday 27 March before the 9.30 service.
Visiting bands will be ringing during the day on Friday March 11 at 3.30 to 4.30, on Saturday April 16 at 10 to 10.45 and on Saturday 23 April (St George’s Day) at 2.30 – 3.30.
We are hoping to organize our next practice night for either Thursday 21 or 28 April. Beginners welcome.
