Thursday 17th August 2017
A total of 19 quarters were rung for the above between 6th and 13th April. This was two more than last year and these were rung at 16 District towers with one (over the border) at Edwardstone. There were 10 conductors, with notably 5 new names for this year – Neil Dodge (PB Minimus at Ampton) Laura Davies (PB Triples at Bardwell) Betty Baines, Louis Suggett, Clare Veal (PB Doubles at Gt Barton) and Timothy Hart (who rounded of the week with Erin Caters at the Cathedral, Bury St Edmunds).
Conductors were Lesley Steed and Winston Girling (4 each) David Howe (3) and Louis Suggett (2) The remaining conductors had one each.
This was a first class effort by all who arranged, conducted and took part in these quarter-peals. It is a clear indication in my view of the health and increasing vigour of our District. It is also excellent to see the increasing participation by our very talented young ringers. Well done to all.
