Victory for Southampton

We’re very pleased to announce that the SCR team came first in the Christchurch and Southampton District striking competition which was held at Brockenhurst on Saturday.  There was a good turnout, with teams attending from Christchurch, Eling and Lyndhurst/Minstead, as well as the local Brockenhurst band, who also laid on some splendid refreshments after the business meeting which took place after the competition. It was a close-fought battle on some challenging bells and we took a bit of a gamble by ringing St Simon’s Bob Doubles rather than playing it safe with Plain Bob or Grandsire, but we managed to produce a good enough test piece to reclaim the coveted Hinton Trophy!
