Denise Stear – Wing walking for Katharine House Hospice

On the 1st of October I will be wing walking for Katharine House Hospice - Banbury because it provides support to patients and their families. When I first heard about wing walking I had a moment of madness where I thought 'I could do that'!

I am

A Peal for Evelyn Phillips tomorrow morning, starting at 9:30am

A group of experienced ringers from the Banbury & Oxford areas will be coming to ring a peal on the Wardington bells on Saturday 14th December; they will start ringing at about 9.30a.m. and the peal will take approximately 3 hours. Peals are normally rung to mark something special, which may be local or national, and this peal is being rung in appreciation of Mrs Evelyn Phillips and to celebrate her 100th and 101st birthdays. What is a peal? Nowadays it indicates a minimum of 5,040 changes – where two bells change place – but there is also a long list of rules, some of which are:  Every bell must sound at every row of six blows throughout the peal.
