5 Million Listeners hear Lily Ring for St. George!

Last night’s episode of The Archers had Lily ringing her heart out and what a sound it made.  They rang and rang and rang as a backdrop to the scene of the churchyard bathed in spring sunshine, as they sat and chatted surrounded  by fresh grass sprinkled with wild flowers and the sound of nesting birds.  A perfect English scene.

Getting into the Spirit and Flying the Flag

We celebrate not only the name of England’s Patron Saint but also his flag and the St. George cross has been flying from many church towers.  Just such a church is St. Andrews in Butterwick, Nr. Boston in Lincolnshire.  Here the band were getting into the spirit of the day and proud to show the flag after they had rung a quarter peal of Plain Bob Doubles.
