And they are right.
The sessions are focused, but jovial, with much joking and everything taken in good humour. You may believe that the ringing is the most important element and ultimately you are right, but a social atmosphere helps towards generating good ringing. Go to Birmingham or the College Youths practice and nearly everyone goes to the pub afterwards and many continue their ringing with trips away and other social occasions that are great fun.
Likewise at Pettistree and other places too.
If you create a light-hearted social environment it attracts more ringers and more often than not good ringing, which in turn usually attracts more ringers and so on.
On this occasion at SMLT, the social element was well fulfilled with an invitation to attend the annual pre-Christmas curry and a drink in The Cricketers where the barman accidentally knocked a pint of beer over Chris Birkby to much amusement, including the soakee.
The ringing was of a decent standard too, albeit better on ten than twelve, though Karina did well to call-changes on the latter number ringing the eighth. Such a productive evening was also a nice way to climax a day that was a bit of a write-off from a productivity perspective.
During the weekend at some point, Charlie our cat had somehow wounded his paw and was clearly in some discomfort. Therefore it was down the vets for the awkward 9.
Mercifully he seemed to recover very quickly and so it was a rather pleasant afternoon, if completely unproductive! Thank God for ringing though — I hope even more will be encouraged to join us for the lovely atmosphere at St Mary-le-Tower!
Well done Rona and congratulations to Loddon. Despite a false start due to one of the band having the wrong pair of bells hence the amusement at the start of the clipit was several minutes of faultless, mesmerising ringing from a band who have rung many thousands of peals — and of course many quarters too — between them that have contributed to the quality ringing they produced.
I helped man the bells at Woodbridge ahead of the service that the boys and I joined my wife in attending, whilst Mrs Munnings rang in the of Plain Bob Minor at Pettistreeanother place where the medium of the quarter-peal is used to full effect.
As explained so eloquently by Ann Webb. Please post any comments on the Top Saturday 3rd November Last time we rang at Cretingham, we had just the one child, it was a roasting hot day and the tower only held five bells.
This afternoon when we went to this ground-floor ring for the South-East District Practice, even with the eldest son at the cinema with his friend we attended with two boys, the weather was bright but chilly and an extra bell has appeared. The new treble has been the result of much fundraising and hard-work, the latter further highlighted by the smell of fresh paint in the ringing chamber and it has to my mind been entirely worth it.
With local learner Peter also getting opportunities and a reasonable turnout, this was a session that showed how useful these events can be if members turn up. Still, more would be much appreciated. Yes it was a bit cold, but this truly rural part of the county looked stunningly beautiful in late afternoon autumnal sunshine, the bells were lovely and the welcome fantastic, with tea and biscuits provided by locals Carol and Eric Brown.
Please do support such occasions if you can. Our visit barely took anything out of our day, with a trip to Felixstowe for some ultimately futile shoe shopping for Alfie also possible with plenty of time left amongst all of this for feeding the boys three times and a relaxed evening of beer and Strictly Come Dancing.
We enjoyed our afternoon at Cretingham.
