The fine weather brought many visitors from distances to the spring meeting of the Andover District, held at Longparish on April 19th. The Rector (the Rev. Mr. Agg-Large) conducted the service and presided at the business meeting which followed tea. Eight new honorary members were elected on the proposition of Mr. Wimpey, of Abbot's Ann, bringing his total to 20; surely a record for a small village. Future events are: Meeting at Abbot's Ann on July 19th and practice meeting on May 31st at four towers - St. Marybourne, Whitchurch (tea), Longparish and Hurstbourne Priors. Evening ringing included that on the heavy six at Hurstbourne Priors.
