Visiting quarter peal ringers

A group of ringers from many parts of the country but led by Alan D Pink from Sussex are in Northamptonshire ringing quarter peals. The tour started on 24th September and will last a week. On Sunday 26th they were in Northampton and attempted three quarter peals at Town Centre churches. Grandsire Caters was rung at All Saints and Sunday Surprise Major at St Peter. Unfortunately the attempt at Holy Sepulchre was unsuccessful.

Sunday service ringing resumes

On Sunday 23rd May 2021, the bells of All Saints church were rung before the 10.30 service. This was the first service ringing since November 1 2020. Those taking part were Selwyn Griffiths, Louise Griffiths, Charlotte Brierley, Nicola Borman, Elizabeth Moore and Bridget Paul. It is hoped that regular service ringing can now take place.

Coronavirus

As requested by the Government to help control the spread of the Coronavirus, all ringing in Northampton has been cancelled for the foreseeable future.
