Over the last six weeks we have taught seven young people from year 6 of St James’ school to handle. All were able to ring a bell on their own and are well on their way to ringing rounds. It was delightful that they all learnt so quickly and we hope that they will continue to ring with us after the holidays. We would have liked them to reach Level 1 of Learning the Ropes, but we probably needed another two weeks to achieve that.
You can see how well they rang at https://youtu.be/fI55SmgZ6QM
They all rang before the end of term service on Friday (although obviously the sound on the video is not actually them ringing).
