St George’s Day Ringing

The Southampton City Ringers and friends marked St George’s day today with two quarter peals successfully scored in the city.

1282 Cambridge Surprise Royal was rung at St Michael’s first followed by 1280 Bristol Surprise Royal at St Mary’s afterwards.

Both quarter peals can be viewed on BellBoard;

November Practice Swaps

We have decided to move a few practices around this month:

On Monday 9th November the practice has moved to St Mary’s, we will be ringing half-muffled to mark Armistice Day which is on the Wednesday of that week.
On Monday 16th November the practice will be at Bitterne Park as normal.
On Monday 23rd November there will be no practice, we will probably have a social event instead.
On Monday 30th November the practice will be at St Michael’s.
The normal schedule will resume at the beginning of December, watch the calendar on the home page for further updates.

September Practice Swap

As the Southampton Boat Show will be in full swing next week and parking will probably be even more limited than usual in the city centre, we have swapped the practice locations as follows:

Monday 14th September: St Mary’s
Monday 28th September: St Michael’s

The practice on Monday 21st September will stay at Bitterne Park as normal, and Sunday service ringing is also unaffected.

Sunday Service Ringing – New Rota

Due to changes of service times at The Ascension, Bitterne Park from the 4th May, we have had to revise our ringing schedule accordingly.  We shall now only ring at one tower a week, rotating between our three towers:  The first three weeks will therefore be:
4th May – St Mary’s – 9.45am – 10.30am
11th May – St Michael’s – 9.45am – 10.30am
18th May – The Ascension – 10.00am – 10.45am
Then back to St Mary’s for the 25th May

The ringing calendar will be updated shortly.

8th December Sunday Service Ringing

Please note that Sunday Service Ringing on Sunday 8/12/2013 will take place at ST MARY’S church, not St Michael’s as previously advertised. This is for a confirmation service, which includes some of the young members of our band.
