Young Bell Ringer’s Quarter Peal Success

St Andrew’s bell ringer, Ethan Musham, rang continuously for 45 minutes prior to Evensong on Sunday 26th March to achieve his first quarter peal at the first attempt.

He rang the treble to Plain Bob Doubles and skilfully moved the position of his bell for 1260 changes along with the five other ringers.

At 16 years of age, this is a significant achievement for Ethan which deserves the congratulations of the whole band. Well done!
