Ely DA quarter peal event
Ten members of the Ely District took part in the Ely DA Quarter Peal event on Saturday 31st October. This was hosted by the Huntingdon District with immaculate organisation. There were two quarter peal slots in the afternoon, with four attempts at each time, and a further four quarter peal attempts in the evening. A total of 36 ringers were involved in these quarter peal attempts, with a few more turning up for the splendid tea and meeting in the St Mary's Centre at Houghton. Although three of the quarter peal attempts were not successful, five additional quarters were rung in the area, involving another ten ringers, so the total of successful quarter peals for the day was 14. Details of all the quarters are on Bellboard, linked to the event here. Congratulations to all involved, and especially to three Landbeach ringers. David Waterhouse rang his first quarter on 6, tenoring behind to Plain Bob Doubles at Hilton, Roger Gooding rang his first quarter on 8, tenoring behind to Plain Bob Triples at Hemingford Grey, and Sarah Alexandra rang her first quarter ever, tenoring behind to Plain Bob Doubles at Houghton (the photo shows the band after the quarter at Houghton).
