QP Day 2011

Association Quarter Peal Afternoon – Saturday 29th October 2011

On a pleasant autumnal afternoon over 25 ringers met at different towers to ring quarter peals as part of the annual Ely Diocesan event. All four were scored and the ringers headed to Oakington for tea. Everyone agreed it was nice to sit and talk with ringers from other districts whilst eating and drinking the much needed cups of tea. Following a successful business meeting the ringers set off for the evening’s attempts. Sadly only two were scored, but those that were lost had some good ringing. Our thanks go to the incumbents for the use of their bells and to Ely District for the organisation.
