More ringing



These are some photographs from my recent ringing at Chew Valley Ringing Station.  I love ringing and I'm grateful to everyone at the ringing station who helps and supports me.  Mike Bailey is my trainer there and he is brilliant, dedicating his retirement to the ringing station.

Special thanks also to Pete Burston, for all his patience as a trainer.
