Our latest Young Ringers outing took place in and around Newbury on a chilly February day in half term. It was a really great day and I got to make lots of new friends who were all excellent ringers. The most fun part of the day was getting to try the bells at three different church towers. We started at Speen, walked on to Shaw (in the wind and rain!) and finished at St Nicholas’ in Newbury town centre. St Nicholas had really loud bells which apparently my brother could hear from the other side of the town!
Trying out at different towers gave me a bit more confidence when facing new bells. It was a really great day and I am looking forward to future outings.
