Well it doesn’t seem that long since the summer, yet next weekend the clocks go back one hour and the nights will continue to draw in. It’s definitely Autumn now.
It has been a while since I posted any news on here so I thought it was time for an update.
The band has been steady throughout the year, with another two learners having reached a high enough standard to be able to ring for services and weddings. As these are our regular ‘public performances’ it is important that the ringing is good.
Three of the band were away in Northampton on a bell ringing trip last weekend where five 10-bell quarter peals were rung. The other 7 ringers were from the Greater Manchester area, or just a little bit further (e.g. Bristol!).
Practice nights tend to be a jolly affair, with a lot of ringing, and more laughing and chatting. It is also around the time when we start to make plans for the ringing around Christmas, as well as the all-important Christmas curry!
If you are interested in what we do or would like to have a go, you are more than welcome to do so. The best thing to do is to send a message from the ‘contact’ page so we can make sure we know to expect you. We practice on Thursday evening 8pm-9.30pm and ring on Sunday mornings at 9.45-10.15am.
