SE District Quarter Peal Fortnight, 2011

This year’s quarter peal fortnight ran from 22nd October to 5th November. Thirteen quarter peals were rung, quite a bit down on last year’s figure, due in the most part to people taking advantage of the mild weather and going away during half-term. However 51 ringers took part; we had one ringing his first quarter peal, and three others ringing their first in the chosen method. It is always satisfying when ringers take advantage of these occasions to achieve a particular target. In addition, there were one or two quarter peal attempts which didn’t succeed, but we are very grateful to those taking part for making the effort.
