Hampreston Quarter Peal Day Wednesday 27th February 2019 – Report

Ross Bradley writes:

“A hastily arranged Hampreston Quarter day for February resulted in some good ringing with quite a few firsts. Angie’s Union doubles blew the cobwebs away early in the morning as did the five doubles methods at Canford Magna. The mixed Plain Bob and Grandsire called by Mike was a steady well-struck quarter on the heavy six at Sturminster Marshall.

“Sadly the Double Oxford failed after some good ringing, one for next month perhaps.”

Hampreston Quarter Peal Day Tuesday 29th January 2019 – Report

Angie Jasper writes:
“On Tuesday 29th January, 20 Hampreston ringers and friends enjoyed a day ringing at a variety of towers in central Dorset and an excellent lunch at The Oak at Dewlish. Ross called a quarter of Spliced Plain and Little Bob which had 3 firsts in it and Harry covered well on his heaviest bell to a quarter at Cerne Abbas, but star of the day was undoubtedly Richard who¬†faultlessly¬†called his first quarter peal of Plain Bob Minor at the first attempt.
“Sadly quarters of Stedman, Double Oxford and Eynesbury Bob Doubles were not successful despite some good ringing.”
