First handbell quarter - 3-4. First handbell quarter of Minor as conductor, also away from the tenors and for a long time - 1-2. First handbell quarter of Minor and for even longer - 5-6.
Rung as a belated birthday compliment to Liz Watson. If at first you don't succeed, try, try again!
The location for the quarter was very apt, as the handbells once belonged to Jim Bowley, who was tower captain at the Oaks when the bells were augmented in 1970/71. He purchased them for use whilst the bells were out of action. Certainly the first quarter on the bells since 1970.
Rung compliant with tier 3 restrictions. No sleeping bags, ear muffs, scarves, thermal underwear, ski boots or the like were worn during the attempt.
