As the Lockdowns have started to ease, we have very cautiously gone back to the tower. For the past two weeks we have rung solo on the simulator enabling us to home-in on our handling techniques, this has given us the opportunity to ring steady with the computer, while maintaining good social distancing. We have all managed rounds and some have managed plain hunting to plain bob doubles, tenoring behind to doubles and Stedman Doubles inside.
We are trying to have a weekly practice and would like to eventually get it back to a regular set night, but just at the moment our practice night is decided amongst ourselves on a week to week basis.
We are hoping it won't be too long until we ring as a team again on 'open' bells, and are hoping to ring for the next Sunday Service. We are obviously keeping a close eye on the local and national news on how well we are doing against the virus.
All our team members have now been fortunate enough to be fully vaccinated and so hopefully it won't be that long until we get back to some sort of normality.
