Many thanks to Doreen Russell for organising the end of November Aldridge outing, which was thoroughly enjoyed by all. We encountered a varied mixture of bells, some good and some requiring more effort (we now appreciate the easy-going Aldridge bells even more!)  Towers visited during the day included: Sheriffhales, Lilleshall, Tibberton, Hinstock, Forton and Church Eaton and ringing at each tower was led by a different member of the band - a new experience for some. We enjoyed a good mix of methods, including Plain Bob, Grandsire, St. Simons, Cambridge and London, as well as call changes in between. I'm looking forward to the next outing already!
