In the car, we discussed how the Hall at Broughton had once been owned by nuns, but was now owned by John Caudwell (The Phones 4U chap). Full details of the hall can be found at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Broughton_Hall,_Staffordshire
After arriving at the Church we met and I introduced the North Staffs Ringers to Dick and Karen; Tim and Jan Hine, Selwyn Jones, from Stafford, Rob Barcroft from Horton, and John Hall from Alton. Although a little 'thin on the ground', probably due to the fact it was the first meeting in person since Lockdown, we managed to ring some well struck, rounds and called changes, Grandsire doubles, Plain Bob Minor and Stedman Doubles. Everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves and it was great to be back in the company of ringing friends.
