Rung to celebrate the winning of the Cheltenham Gold Cup by 'Synchronised' the previous day. The horse was trained by Jonjo O'Neill, whose stables are near the village.
The first quarter on the augmented ring, all the band being members of both the FSG and the G&B, the two grant giving organisations involved. Peter Newing donated the new bell and happily was able to ring it on this special occasion. The ringing was indeed 'synchronised'!
