The ringing of bells across the country for St. George’s Day has caught the imagination of a growing public which in turn has encouraged the media to sit up and take note. Your wonderful work and skill is being appreciated and the Campaign salutes you all and wishes to thank you for your terrific and generous support for the project.
A ringer has sent in the amazing news that there were 12 Peals and 100 Quarter Peals rung for St. George’s Day. Is this true? Is this a record for one particular day? Please may I have your comments on this and, indeed, any other regarding the day.
This part of Devon is richly represented by a host of towers that all joined in and had a great day. In the picture are: Delie Perry of Hawkchurch, Maureen Davey of Shute, Anne Bailey of Sidmouth, Kathy Matthews of Colyton, Lisa Clarke and Janet Reynolds of Coombe Raleigh. The news was sent in by Trevor Hitchcock.
There were many wonderful bands in this part of the country that rang out throughout the day. They gave Essex a great rendering of all types of methods and helped this year’s campaign be such a success. In this photo of the band from All Saint’s in Colchester are: Pauline Millatt, Anne Turner, Val Banwell, Barry Gibbons, Mary Coe, Pam Avis
