11th March - District Striking Competitions at East Farleigh
The 2017 District Striking Competitions will be held on the back six at East Farleigh (tenor 7¾cwt) on Saturday 11th March. The bells will be available for open ringing from 9.30am with the draw taking place at 9.45am. Competition ringing will commence at 10am.
As usual there will be separate competitions for Call Change bands and for Method ringing bands, with a trophy on offer in each category. This ensures that those bands who do not have enough ringers able to ring methods can still enter and enjoy the challenge of pitting their skills against other call change bands in the District. For the competition rules follow the respective links above.
