Ring Something Simple, Watlington 3rd June 2017

From Pam Wakeling:

Well done to the organisers of 'Ring something Simple' at Watlington this afternoon, and particularly to Kirstie for running it. It was a very enjoyable occasion, with an attendance of 24, most of whom were learners and improvers. They all seemed to enjoy themselves and for some it was their first excursion to a tower other than 'home'. I hope the next session will be announced, as it seemed to be something that was wanted and will be supported.

From Bob Cox:

It was indeed a good result. The bells were always ringing with everybody knowing that they could ring pretty much everything that was called to be rung. This was a first try of something different for some time and I'm really encouraged with the support given to this initiative. There were (of course) some learning points about the organisation however these were probably not even seen by the attending ringers who were engaged in the event, the cakes, the quiz, the raffles and even the ringing!...while the sun shone we supported the local village open garden charity event - a win for all!

Well done to Kirstie and Alan for the work put into this – Most appreciated!
