Not The Dinner Day 2019

What better way to get over the January blues than joining friends from the Society for a day of peal ringing, finished off with a delicious curry?!

All five peal attempts were successful and a total of 34 members took part in the days ringing, 14 of whom rang two peals in the day. In addition to regular towers booked for Society events, the Senior Steward managed to secure some rarer towers this year in Battersea and South Hackney and participants were grateful to score peals at new venues. Methods rung varied from single Surprise Major and Royal to Stedman Caters and Horton’s 4 Spliced Surprise Major.

After the days ringing we returned to the Bangalore Express City in the Heart of the City for the fourth year running. 42 members sat down to enjoy fantastic Indian cuisine and took full advantage of discounted drinks. A wonderful evening was enjoyed by all who attended and the event was a resounding success thanks to the team of organising officers and the hospitality of the restaurant staff.
