Northern District Wraps Up 2019 Events with a Festive Practice

As has become traditional, the last Northern District Saturday Gathering of the year was ringing with mulled wine (or mulled juice!) and mince pies. We received a warm welcome at Hartfield, and made the most of the new kitchen area and loo there, not to mention the lovely ring of 6 easy-going bells. By the end of the afternoon there were 16 ringers, from 9 different towers. Ringing was rounds onwards and included rounds and call changes, Cambridge (both a plain course and a touch), Kent, Beverley and Surfleet.

The committee is currently putting together the programme of Saturday events for 2020 – do get in touch (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) if you have any requests or suggestions, or if your tower would like to host an event. Maybe you would like a practice focused on a particular method, or have an idea for a social event, or you’d like to host a Pickled Egg session at your tower… Let us know! The first Saturday Gathering of 2019 will be ringing and brunch on 4th January.
