On Sunday 5th January a band, led by Bob Gardner, rang before Richard Ormston’s last service in Oundle. He has moved on to be Archdeacon of Northampton. As always, the congregation commented on how nice it was to hear the bells so we are renewing our efforts to establish a regular practice night again soon. Two new ringers, Pat and Sue who live in Oundle, have been learning on Saturday mornings at Castor. They have been making excellent progress and look forward to ringing with us.
A new rope has been fixed to the spiral staircase up to the tower, which makes ascents and descents much safer and easier.
