Wednesday, 24 June 2020 in 58m (16 in A♯)
1260 Plain Bob Minor
1–2 Alex Sharpe
3–4 Helen Sharpe
5–6 Lynn Scales (C)
First QP on handbells: 1-2, 3-4.
First QP on handbells as conductor.
Very, very belated engagement compliment to James Ramsbottom and Casey McLellan.
Rung via Facebook Messenger.
Alex & Helen shipped a pair of the somewhat heavy Clun handbells to Lynn at the beginning of April and the adventure began. Neither Alex nor Helen had rung methods on handbells and Lynn had some very limited experience from several years ago. After meeting online 3 times a week and 12 weeks after our first session the QP was rung in grand style and came round in less than an hour. Just. Once we can ring together "in person" I'm sure we'll ring much quicker.
