On Saturday 18th June, Freeland hosted the 2022 branch 6-bell striking competition. Our disappointment with the wet weather, the day after a record June heatwave, was tempered by the fantastic catering supplied by the Freeland ringers in the Taunton Room.
Tony Crabtree, our Guild Steward, kindly agreed to judge, albeit from his car due to the inclement weather.
North Leigh and Church Hanborough triumphed in the first contest since the 2019 Combe hosted competition.
The results were:
1st – North Leigh 71 faults
2nd – Church Hanborough 78 faults
Joint 3rd – Combe and Freeland 105 faults
5th – Witney 112 faults
1st – Church Hanborough 50 faults
2nd – North Leigh 58 faults
3rd – Freeland 84 faults
4th – Witney 97 faults.
Our thanks go to Richard White, our Ringing Master, for organising and to George White for time keeping.
Well done everyone who took part.
