TRC Young ringers joined the Guild Young ringers in Exeter. They had their first opportunity to meet with the Cathedral School young ringers and try their hand at the Denmish ring.
Mandy Burnett achieved level 4 on the Learning the Ropes Scheme in May. Mandy started ringing in August 2014 at Bampton. She rings regularly at Bampton, Huntsham, St Peter's, Tiverton and around the NE Branch and also helps Sheila & Les with the After School Bell Club at Bampton. When work takes her to Leeds she rings around the location with friends which has added to her progress. To achieve the final target for level 4 she rang Plain Bob Doubles on an inside bell.
I have prepared a photo essay showing the Replacement of Tenor Clapper at Bampton, that can be downloaded in PDF format HERE.
Congratulations to Mike Hatchett on 65 years of Peal ringing his first peal being at Horton Berkshire on the 26th August 1952. Mike rang his 1000th peal in June 2008, and by my guesstimate Mike must have rung around to 1270 peals to date.
