joining the Ely Diocesan Association

With Sue Bates, and Caroline and Carrie-Anne Armes, I attended the AGM of the Huntingdon District of the Ely Diocesan Association of Church Bellringers. Sue, Jenny and I were elected members of the Association, which requires reasonable competency at ringing a bell.

Ringing in the New Year

New Year’s Day: at 11.20am we rang the bells at St Ives to celebrate the New Year, followed by a lunch party for ringers from the area.

By this stage I could ring reasonably well in rounds on a number of bells, and could ring a tenor cover to a Triples method. I could also ring ‘called changes’, but not always correctly.
