Ring for the King

Over 4,600 ringing performances have been reported nationwide (and Commonwealth-wide) for the Coronation – part of the Ring for the King initiative. At at All Saints we rang three times over the weekend. On Coronation day we rang shortly before the ceremony in London, on the Sunday evening we rang a quarter peal of Kent Treble Bob Major, and then on Monday morning we rang a full peal (which lasted around three hours) of Plain Bob Major.

These performances were our part in the public celebration, and also significant landmarks for two of the participants. It was the first peal ‘inside’ (ie ringing the full work of the method) for one of our ringers, and it was the first peal for a keen teenager from Arborfield who has been ringing regularly with us to gain more experience, especially on eight bells.

Two of our ringers also rang in a peal at St Paul’s and a peal of a relatively new method, King Charles III Delight Major, at Yorktown.

In all, we’ve done a lot of public ringing for national events over the last year, including the late Queen’s Jubilee and death.
