This year the striking competition was hosted by the ringers of St Andrew, Allensmore on Sunday 3rd July. There were lots of burgers and sausages on the barbeque, followed by some fantastic cakes and plenty to drink of course!!
This year there were 7 teams that entered into the competition to compete for the call change and method ringing shields. As each team made their way into the tower to ring the rest could sit out in the sun and enjoy the refreshments.
After all 7 teams had rung it was time to hear from our judge for the day, Tim Hollinghurst, who had been listening intently as each band took their turn to ring. Comments were given and each band awarded a final score.
The winning teams were presented with a shield to display in their tower until next year!
