The Whitechapel Trophy is firmly in the hands of Sussex Young Ringers after a superb 180 of Grandsire Doubles at St Mark’s Exeter triumphed over 6 other method teams at the Ringing World National Youth Contest. As well as the Ringing World, you’ll see a picture of the team and trophy on the website and an article in Soundbow soon. Meanwhile Samuel and I have both been interviewed on Radio Sussex. There's also a photo of Katherine ringing the tenor at Exeter Cathedral, demonstrating that tenors are "not just a boy thing"!
The Ashdown Forest outing in July saw a number of new faces with 17 youngsters altogether (thanks to the parents and helpers who provided transport). Quote from Riley (aged 8): "It was awesome to meet young ringers of all abilities!"
