St Chad’s Bellringers
Since October 2022, when it was announced that the Coronation of King Charles III would take place on Saturday 6th May 2023, the bell-ringers have been busy practising. It was important for each ringer to decide what they wanted to ring for the Coronation. Some wanted to ring a sequence, whereas others wanted to ring a method on a specific bell, including Tinker 1 and Tinker 2, as they are affectionally known.
In January 2023, a fellow ringer from St Annes-on-the-Sea came to our practice night and he thoroughly enjoyed himself. He agreed to come every Friday to help us to learn Bob Doubles. A massive thank you to this gentleman, Adrian Page, for helping us.
On the afternoon of the Coronation, the 16 ringers taking part rang all that we had set out to achieve. For those of you wondering, we rang Kings, and Princes which are sequences, Plain Hunt on 7 (on 8 bells), Plain Bob Doubles and Grandsire Doubles (on 6 bells).
Huge thanks to all our ringers for their commitment to bellringing.
