Lichfield & Walsall Archdeaconries Society — Peal Week

16 – 23 February 2019

Our annual peal ringing festival, encouraging progressive peals to be rung and linked to this Event. Lichfield & Walsall Peal Week 2019. The 10th annual peal week took place during the February half term holiday. The objective of the week is to provide members with the opportunity to attempt something progressive as part of the Society’s Challenge Month. A total of 36 ringers were involved in 10 attempts, of which 7 were successful. These included a number of firsts, notably a first peal for Alex Packham from Lichfield Cathedral. We were unlucky with the 3 that got away, which included Plain Bob Major, Horton’s 4 spliced and Norman Smith’s. Hopefully we will achieve a rematch of these in the near future. Thank you to all the towers that made their bells available to us, to Steve, Jonathan, Gordon and Geoff for assisting with the organisation of attempts, and to everyone who took part. Finally, well done and congratulations to everyone who achieved their goal during the week. Stuart Hutchieson
