Ringing in the New Year

As per the Kingston Ringers’ tradition members of the band and guests rang in the start of the New Year.  The evening began with a meal and party at the Tower Captain’s and Secretary’s house and we then adjourned to the tower to ring in the New Year and toast it with a glass of champagne.

Ringing on 20th May

I have booked for 12 people at Strada, as it’s not at all clear to me who is & isn’t coming!  Hopefully it will be around 12 of us – there are 12 names on the board, I  know not all are intending to eat and Adrian & Alison are coming as well.

We also agreed ringing would start at 7 pm so there’s plenty of time to ring the bells up then down again so hope to see lots of people for ringing.  It’s a special service involving churchwardens from around the area .

Best wishes,


Door Bell

Dear Kingston Ringers

At last our door bell has been fixed and is now working.  A new bell push has been fitted just slightly to the left of where the old one was, where there is now a hole.  Where it was originally fitted it was getting squished every time the door was opened and this broke the push.  We tested it last night and it is working fine.

Best wishes


Practice Wednesday 20 May

Dear Kingston Ringers

The church has an Archdeacon’s visit on Wednesday 20 May, including a service at 8 pm for churchwardens around and about to attend.  We can’t have our normal practice.  Jonathan would like us to ring for the service from 7.15 to 8 pm.  My guess is that we ought to be able to get enough people together to do that. Maybe we could go out to eat somewhere afterwards, as eating first could be tricky. We are away this week but perhaps you could let me know if you are available and we can start a list on the blackboard.

Best wishes,
