Gransden / Swavesey Outing 2014
On Saturday 25th October 22 ringers from freinds and family groups met for the "Gransey" outing. Ringers were from Swavesey, Ratby, St.Neots and Gransden. Our day in Northamptonshire included ringing at five towers, a good pub lunch and warm weather. A good day was enjoyed by everyone and we were please to see Merlin and Una, the two guide dog puppies being trained by Matthew and Michelle.
We enjoyed good bells in all the towers and the prize for the best kept ringing room must go to Orlingbury where everything was tidy and well presented (just as a ringing room should be!). The staff at The Red Lion at Bozeat gave us a very warm welcome, good service and good food. Most of the ringing during the day was rounds and call changes but we did manage at least one prime ring at each tower. Methods included Cambridge Minor, Grandsire Triples, Stedman Triples and Double Oxford bob Minor.
