On Friday 3rd May, we had a group of visiting bell ringers in the early evening. One of them, Colin Turner, is the world record holder in bell ringing. He has rung the most peals, 7,571 (5,000 changes, usually 3 hours non-stop ringing)! The closest to him is Alan Regin, with 5,947.

The church was swamped with bell ringers from all over Cumbria on the afternoon of 11th May as St Bridget’s hosted the annual striking competitions – to see which team can produce the most even ringing.

We also rang the bells for two weddings this month. Both wonderful occasions.
