Bellringers Trip to Stratford upon Avon area

On a warm sunny day in early October, we set out for our annual trip, organised by Maurice. We had cars and a minibus, so 20+ringers set off for our first tower at Sherbourne. This was followed by a short trip to Barford, where the tea and cake did lure some people away from the ringing!

Our last tower of the morning was at Wellesbourne, followed by lunch in the Kings Head.

Finally, the last leg of the outing took us to Stratford upon Avon, where has time to wander around the quaint town before our final ring of the day.

A great day out and we have a collection of photos to remind us of a wonderful trip. For a detailed report from our news hound Jim, please click here.
