Striking Competition 2018

This year the striking competition was hosted by the ringers of St Lawrence, Canon Pyon on Sunday 8th July. There were lots of burgers and sausages on the barbecue, expertly cooked by Dan and plenty to drink of course!!

This year there were 8 teams that entered into the competition to compete for the call change and method ringing shields. As each team made their way across the farmyard and into the tower to ring the rest could sit out in the sun and enjoy the refreshments.

We had several ringers taking part in their very first striking competition, very well done to them and we hope to see them back next year.

After all 8 teams had rung it was time to hear from our judge for the day, our very own David Carter, 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!
