As COVID-19 restrictions eased in 2021, we attempted to resume our practice sessions towards the end of the year, but suspended ringing again in December due to the rising infection rates, plus the need to provide ventilation in an unheated church on bitterly cold nights meant it wasn’t a very comfortable experience.
However, we resumed our practice sessions shortly before Easter, and everyone is gradually remembering all the things that have been forgotten with a two year break!
With some normality returning to daily life, we are starting to receive requests to ring bells from visiting bands. The Ringing Calendar has been updated with the latest details, including two peal attempts. Saturday 4th June 2022 sees a band associated with our augmentation attempt to ring the very first peal at Ab Kettleby for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Weekend.
