August 2012 - February 2013
Ringing in 2012 was mainly focused on our Jubilee Challenge which was to ring 60 quarter peals before the end of the year of our Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. This was achieved on Thursday 13th December and we celebrated with a party at the Conservative Club. We were joined by some of the ringers and their partners who had helped in the achievement. 34 ringers had taken part and 26 different methods/variations were rung.
We have also managed to fit in social activities and outings. We had our usual Chinese meal out and our D.I.Y. meal at the Christies. We have been to the Greyhound Stadium and had our annual ringing weekend in Somerset.
We would like to congratulate Tom Stevenson on ringing his 1st quarter peal with us and also Geoff Davis who has been ringing at St Mary’s for 60 years (although he missed our final Jubilee celebration because of a fractured thumb – he assures us that he was sober at the time of the fall!!)
