Striking Competition Results 2019

Date: Saturday 5th May 2019  
Venue: St Peter,
Judges: Colin and Vicki Chapman

There was a record turn-out of 10 teams this year, 7 for the Call Change section and 3 for the Method section. The judges, Colin and Vicki Chapman from Chelmsford, found that the sound of the bells had to compete with rain, hail and a talkative goose during the evening. They noted that all the bands had initial problems with the 3rd and 4th bells, one being quick and the other slow, that some of the call change bands rang quite slowly and that all the method section ringing sounded good.
