Subject: RE: bellringing
I have only just started about 3 weeks ago...I go to practice nights and have had a few individual lessons with the clappers tied to try and get the knack of pulling the rope...which is not as easy as it looks. This week I 'covered' on plain hunt apparently!!! of course I had a lot of help...with an expert holding the sallie.I know it'll be a long time before I'm let loose on a sunday morning!

I ring at Holy Trinity in Hull...15 bells!!! 2 x 12s 26 combinations(I think thats right) no it doesn't make sense to me but those who know bells might understand!! the biggest bell is a ton and a half! Two local towers have joined forces and early next year we will start ringing at St Mary's Lowgate...the bells there have been silent since 1956!!!I can't do a blue clicky thing but have a look at www.lowgate.org.uk
