Believed to be the highest ringing performance in England today (280 m AOD). Rung in memory of our friend, Janice Henney, who's ashes were scattered near here. These handbells were restored in her memory in 2017.
Rounds and call changes on 8 were also rung, along with Christmas Carols, The Sussex Carol, I Saw Three Ships and Ding Dong Merrily on High. Other friends that rang were Colin and Gill Wheeler; Madeline Littlewood and Nick Hawkins; Mike, Clare and Georgina Rudd; Richard Wallhead; Margaret Ranken; and Mary Rains.
