Six Young Ringers rang a Quarter Peal at St Benet's Church in Cambridge on Sun 24th Aug. Will writes:
We rang 1260 changes in 43 minutes. The Band was: 1. Chris (2nd Quarter); 2. Rachel (1st Quarter); 3. Billy; 4. William; 5. Adam (C); 6. Ben (1st Quarter)
We then moved on to Bluntisham and enjoyed another ring of eight that Huntington had to offer. At this pretty church Barbara took the opportunity to present some supplies in the form of biscuits which were enjoyed at a number of different towers and in transit between the towers.
Supplies being decimated rapidly we then moved on from Huntington District and entered into my district with ringing at Wilburton, the only six bell tower of the day. This gave the younger ringers a chance to practice on a smaller number of bells and we could all perhaps try ringing slightly different things to what we are used to.
Leaving Ely district behind us we journeyed to Orwell for our final ring of the day. We all gave the last tower the last of our energies and felt thoroughly tired as we journeyed home. Thanks to Barbara, Alan and Chris for providing transport, to St Ives, Bluntisham, Wilburton, Ely and Orwell for allowing us to use their towers and to Adam, Will and Rachel for organising the outing. Thanks to Barbara for taking the photos.
