Haughton Bell Ringing, Church Service times and Stafford Bells Update
We had our second Zoom ringing practice on Wednesday 18th November. This time we were well practice and logging on and setting up the platform, and so we were able to spend more time on the 'Virtual' ringing app. We rang our usual rounds, titums, and queens, and managed to spend more time learning plain hunt.
This Week's Church Services will be once again conducted by Rev. Cath Brumfit on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/Beneficeofbradleychurcheatonderringtonandhaughton/ at 10.30am,
by telephone at 5pm, and on Zoom at 6.30pm. All are welcome to join any or all of them.

This week's ringing is a recording made some years ago of St. Mary's Bells of Stafford ringing Yorkshire Royal. Obviously, their bells were removed last year as they are undergoing a complete refurbishment, please see our post from last year:
Although this kind of work quite often gets delayed by a week or two, we could have never imagined how 2020 would have planned and the work being delayed by the pandemic. We have our fingers crossed they will be installed in the first half of 2021.
