Alderney goes to the New Forest

Ay & friends outing to New Forest

Mariko used her local knowledge to very good effect in arranging our outing to the New Forest for weekend March 23/24th. Aaron, June, Stephen, Aileen, Helen & Peter were delighted to be joined by Justin, Louise, Hannah, William & Richard from Jersey also Paul & Helen Wells and June Saint from UK – a real dream team:-)

We visited Christchurch Priory, (27cwt , 12), Hordle (7cwt, 8) & Hinton (9cwt , 5). Lunch in the Smugglers Inn then Milford-on-sea (12 cwt , 8) and Brockenhurst (4cwt, 8) – all our excellent ringing (call changes, Stedman triples, Bob triples, Grandsire triples, DNCBM, Cambridge S Major & 4 spliced,) bore fruit at Ringwood:

On Sunday we met with local ringers in Bournemouth for service ringing at 3 churches and then we were joined by John & June Wells for another great quarter:

A wonderful weekend – thanks Mariko & Stephen for all the arranging:-)
