A quarterly meeting of the Alton and Petersfield District was held at Steep on Saturday, July 20th. It is believed to be the first meeting of ringers ever held there and warranted a larger attendance. Members were present from Blackmoor, East Meon, Petersfield and Steep, and a visitor from Farnborough. The bells were rung during the afternoon and evening. The Guild's service was conducted by the Rev. N. M. Livingstone (Vicar), who gave an excellent address. Tea at the Village Hall was admirably supplied by the wives of the Steep ringers.
A short business meeting followed, and the hon. secretary explained that the meeting was then being held at Steep, as it was inconvenient to go to Newton Valence as arranged, in the absence of the Vicar.
It was decided to hold an evening meeting some time in August, and the next quarterly meeting was fixed for September 28th at Froyle.
