Angie Jasper writes:
“Friday 9th August saw 20 of us head off to the beautiful Chalke Valley, west of Salisbury, to attempt six quarter peals in all.
“The very busy morning started well with Grandsire doubles scored at Donhead St Mary followed by a lovely quarter of All Saints doubles at Chilmark which was a first in the method for Aila. Unfortunately other quarters of Cambridge, Kent and Stedman were not successful this time.
“We had an enjoyable lunch at the Greater Good pub in Fovant after which many of the ringers returned home. The remaining eight of us went on to Fordingbridge where Richard, Kate and Caroline rang their first blows of Middlesex triples and carried on to score an excellent quarter peal at the first attempt.
“Thanks to all those who took part and to the towers who allowed us to use their bells. Although not everyone scored a quarter this time, I hope there was some useful practice for another day.”
