On Promotion Sunday, young bell ringer Hayden Musham received an award for ringing his first quarter peal during the past year.
Hayden learnt to ring at the start of 2017, rang his first quarter peal in 2018 and has now rung a total of 5 quarter peals; 4 at St Andrew’s and one at North Ockendon. A quarter peal involves about 45 minutes of continuous ringing.
The prize received was a ringing record book and a book containing diagrams of the whole range of bell ringing patterns or methods.
