So on the agenda are: Touches of Grandsire, Stedman and, possibly, Erin Triples, touches of Plain, Little, Double Norwich. Then there are Kent and/or Oxford TB.<br/>This is an opportunity to get into change ringing with a decent ring of bells and reasonably reliable ringers as well as a reminder for experienced ringers.
