Immediately prior to the usual practice night. According to bellboard, first successful QP of Grandsire Triples on tower bells in the County since 26 Feb 2020, first pure Triples (common-bobs only) in the Ashford District of the KCA since first restrictions were introduced in March 2020. First QP on the full octave here since May 2019. To celebrate the 106th anniversary of the rehanging of the bells and recasting the trebles by Bowell of Ipswich.

Minor on the heavy six as well as the usual call-changes, hunt etc on the octave.
