Calling changes

Michael tried get­ting me to call some changes. First call­ing the treble up over each oth­er bell (to 7th), then 2 over the oth­ers etc, until it comes back into rounds.

Later he had me try and call to ‘Queen’s’ (13572468) but I couldn’t get my head around this at the time.

As usu­al, a bit of think­ing after the prac­tice reveals that you need to call 6 up one place over 7, 4 up two places over 5 and 7, and 2 up 3 places over 3, 5 and 7; and then get them back of course.


a band of ringers

This month, for the first time we held a ringers’ meet­ing to form­ally change the sig­nat­or­ies on the Tower bank account. Sue Bates and I became sig­nat­or­ies. John Mar­low remained as a sig­nat­ory from the pre­vi­ous ringers, so that there is offi­cially con­tinu­ity with that band.
