Jubilee ringing

The Platinum Jubilee weekend saw much celebration across the nation, which included a lot of bell ringing – over 2,500 performances have been published – and here at All Saints we played our part.

On the morning of Friday 3rd we took part in nationwide ringing timed to end at the same time as ringing at St Paul’s Cathedral before the Thanksgiving Service.

On Sunday 5th, as part of our ringing for morning service, we included a special touch of 70 changes. To those outside it would just sound like our normal ringing, but us, and other ringers who read the performance report, the significance of it being 70 changes long is clear.

In the Sunday afternoon we rang two quarter peals. The first, of Kent Treble Bob Major, was rung on handbells at 2 Murdoch Road, and the second, of Yorkshire Surprise Major, was rung in the tower at All Saints.
