The Mortimer Bellringers took part in the Reading Branch Striking competition held in Purley church on Saturday. In this, we ring at a set of bells we have never rung before. The aim is to ring as evenly as possible with marks off for every time one bells clangs against another. Last year this was held in Mortimer and with the home team advantage, we came third. This time was rather harder so we did not trouble the podium but we had a great morning out and felt we acquitted ourselves with credit, flying the Mortimer flag!
Here we are, all ready for the competition.
