A meeting of the Andover District was held at Amport on Saturday, May 4th, when 18 members were present from Andover, Highclere, King’s Somborne, St. Mary Bourne, North Stoneham, Woolton Hill and Winchester, with a very welcome visitor from Swindon. During the afternoon and evening good use was made of the ring of six bells, touches of Grandsire, Bob and Stedman Doubles, Bob and Kent Treble Bob Minor being rung.

A splendid tea was enjoyed in the Church Hut, and the business meeting followed. The Vicar of Amport, who was voted to the chair, extended a hearty welcome to the Guild. He said that he was sorry that his own ringers were not present, but in the near future he hoped that they would take their place in the fellowship of the Guild.

It was decided to hold meetings at Laverstoke on June 29th and Andover on October 5th, also a combined practice at Andover on June 12th.

During the evening a party went over to Thruxton and rang various touches of Doubles on the old ring of five bells, which badly need the attention of a bell hanger.
