Alderney outing to Surrey

10 Alderney ringers went to Surrey on Sat Oct 7th on a Tower Outing – for some it was their first ever outing!!. We were joined by 5 UK ringers and together we rang at Redhill, Reigate, Bletchingley, Godstone and Caterham. Most of the towers had 8 bells but 2 towers had 10 bells. Most of the towers had the heaviest bell about the same weight as ours but 3 towers had much heavier bells – we very much enjoyed the challenges these variations presented us with, after all variety is the spice of life

We had learned a special method for the outing – Surrey Surprise Major and we rang that well. With the support of our UK friends the Alderney ringers were able to revise some of the more challenging methods in our repertoire – Bristol, Cambridge & Yorkshire Surprise Major also Grandsire Triples and Grandsire Caters
