8 Bell practice 4 January 2019 – cancelled

Dear all, I have cancelled the 8 bell practice on 4 January, as I don’t think there will be enough ringers to make it effective.  Also there are other Branch events in January, namely the AGM on 19 January, where there will be the opportunity to ring on 8 bells at both St Mary’s and St John’s in Peterborough, and ringing at the Cathedral on 27 January.

A very merry Christmas to everyone, and a Happy New Year of ringing.

Best wishes,

Hilary

 

Guild Ten Bell Practice

The next Guild ten bell practice will be on DECEMBER 29th from 10.30 -12.30 at MOULTON NN3 7SP

Aiming to ring Bristol S Royal and Littleport Little S Royal

Sounds like a break from being “festive” for all the ten bell ringers out there!

Happy Christmas everyone, Happy New Year and see you in January…

( at the AGM January 19th – don’t forget to let me know if you are coming to that)

Ringing at the Cathedral, 27 January 2019

Dear all, this is advance notice that the Branch has been invited to ring for Evensong at the Cathedral on Sunday 27 January 2019.  This is a very enjoyable ring and a good opportunity for everyone to experience ringing on higher numbers of bells.

Please meet at 2pm near the shop inside the Cathedral. We will then ascend at 2.10pm, ready to ring from 2.20pm until 3.20pm. All are most welcome to join us.

I’d like to wish everyone a lovely Christmas, and lots of enjoyable bell ringing in 2019.

Best wishes,

 

Hilary
