Wombell at Uppingham Feast Day

We borrowed the ‘Wombell’ from the Guild for Uppingham Feast Day – see picture – and attracted quite a few people to try their hand at ringing! The Wombell is a Saxilby Ringing Simulator mounted on a frame, and is especially useful for younger people to try the feel of a real bell, but safely. It has a laptop attached to produce the sound, and can be used to ring any method supported by the software.

We would like to say thankyou to Uppingham Church for permission to erect it inside the Church, to the Peterborough Guild for lending it to us – and to all the volounteers who helped assemble, teach and dismantle the thing.

Well done Sue Webster for taking the initiative to try it out and manage all the ins and outs of transport and logistics!

Summer Ringing Tour Cancelled

Unfortunately, we had to cancel the Summer Ringing Tour on 25th June, but the next planned event will be the 5-Bell get-together and Picnic, set for 16th July at Hambleton!
