“Hampreston Quarter Peal Day was a great success, with 4 quarter peals scored, and a 5th which got very close to being scored had it not have been for mechanical problems. A new method was scored, 1344 New College Little Bob Major at Wareham which was a first for all the band; 1344 Plain Bob Triples at Swanage saw Peter Murdock-Saint ring his first on 8 inside; 1320 May Day Doubles at Oakdale had firsts for Kim Matthews, Tricia Stephens and Sally Jenkins and a further quarter peal of 1260 Plain Bob Minor at Corfe Castle completed the set.”

“This was a hugely successful day with all 6 quarters scored and all containing firsts. Special thanks go to Caroline Barnes who stepped in with only a few hours’ notice and rang in three quarters including her first of St Martin’s doubles and also scored her 100th quarter peal. Other notable firsts included Richard’s first of Norwich, Paul’s first of Kent and Gill’s first of more than one method. Well done to David too for his first go on an anti-clockwise ring. Two topical quarters to end with were St George’s doubles as it was St George’s Day and of course April Day doubles which also brought quite a few more firsts.

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.”

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.”
