Rung by the local band to celebrate the Royal Visit of H.R.H. Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales, to Tattershall today.
General Ringing of Rounds & Call Changes took place for an hour prior to him arriving at the Church involving all the local band (including the youngest & oldest members), being rung whilst Prince Charles arrived at neighbouring Tattershall Castle and throughout his half hour visit at the Castle. Also whilst he walked across from the Castle to the Church and then again when he left the Church for a further half an hour.
The Prince was visiting neighbouring Tattershall Castle in his position as President of the National Trust followed by visiting this Church, the Collegiate Church of the Holy Trinity, in his position as Patron of the Lincolnshire Churches Trust. During his visit to the Church all the ringers were presented to the Prince in turn and the Prince also accepted the invitation to have a go at ringing a bell by ringing some supervised backstrokes.
