8-bell Branch Practice – date changed to 30 June

The Branch Practice normally occurs at Norbury on the 1st Thursday of the month. However, due to another event occuring on the 6th July at Staley St Paul’s, we have brought forward this practice by a week, to 30 June.

We aim to cater for a wide range of 8 bell ringing and concentrate on the following methods:

  • Plain Bob Major
  • Grandsire Triples
  • Stedman Triples
  • Double Norwich Court Bob Major
  • Cambridge Surprise Major
  • Yorkshire Surprise Major
  • Lincolnshire Surprise Major

All are welcome and encouraged to come along! 7:45 start until 9:15 (ish)

East Branch 6-bell striking competition

The annual local competition took place at Nether Alderley church yesterday evening and we managed (yet again) a close second place behind Poynton, our nearest neighbour. So they get the opportunity to travel to the Guild final in a fortnight’s time to defend the Trophy that we won last year!

For the record, the Norbury band rang 120 changes of London Surprise Minor and were:

1. Joyce Gardner
2. Rebecca Glen
3. Stephen Hughes
4. Peter Broadbent
5. Simeon Farrington
6. Geoff Gardner
