Women's Ringing Weekend, July 2023

The recent Harrison-Sorell family visit to Sydney prompted a weekend of ringing for Sydney and interstate women (and youth) to build heavy bell and conducting skills, and to work towards improving the ANZAB statistics. See the first women's QP on the back eight at St Mary's, and the first women's QP of Stedman for ANZAB.

Additionally there were quarter peal attempts of Plain Bob Minor and Grandsire Caters (34cwt tenor), allowing skills development for conductors Natalie Shea and Kathi Downs, as well as the members of each band.

Overall it was a successful and worthwhile gathering for all involved.
