Another very enjoyable Two Island Cluster (TIC) event was held in Wellington. It started with two days of handbell ringing and a quarter peal to celebrate the 90th birthday of Daniel Richards, former Wellington ringer, and the 75th birthday of Terry Spearing. Photo above.

The TIC continued with several more quarter peals and practices of splicing 1-2 lead end and 1-6 lead end methods. We also rang some ‘treble jump’ methods – really difficult, but good fun to try!

Two of the Wellington learners attended and had some good practice on the mini ring.

Obviously, the weekend included many coffee/tea breaks and meals and other refreshments! Thanks to the Wellington ringers for hosting, and Derek Williams for organising.
