Two Teens & a Mom: 30July2017

What a treat to have 8 bells a ringin’ yesterday thanks to our local band members: Marguerite, Judy, Robert, Bobbie, Jody and our guest visitors from the UK: Maddy, Verity and their Mom Julia.

On Sunday’s the Brett girls first ring at St Michael’s the Archangel (1821) in Devon by the sea, and then walk 10 minutes (rain or shine) over to St James to ring again.  They spoke of the St James (oldest building in Teignmouth) bells having to be rung from the ground level which makes the ropes so unweildy that they call their ringing sessions “Battle the Bungy!”  Imagine.
