On 18th May, ringers from around the district met at Seal Chart to compete in the call changes and method striking competitions. A lovely sunny morning and a friendly group of local ringers greeted us, and the morning began with the draw for each competition. Bands from Hadlow, Tonbridge, Speldhurst and Sevenoaks each rang the small, but challenging bells to compete for the honour of representing the district at the country striking competition in September.
Hadlow came away with the prize, and an inexperienced but brave band from Hever won the call change competition. Many thanks go to Seal Chart for hosting, Neil Jones from Rochester Cathedral for judging and we hope to see many of you at Seal in September to support Hadlow!
