The summer meeting of the Basingstoke District was held at Sherborne St. John on Saturday, July 23rd, when 43 members were present. The bells were got going to Grandsire Doubles and Bob Minor in the afternoon. Service in St. Andrew’s Church was conducted by the Rector, Rev. Winser, who gave an excellent address on bells and ringing.

Tea was served in the school, and was followed by a short business meeting. The secretary (Major Stilwell) thanked Mr. G. C. Hammond for presiding and for arranging tea, and the churchwardens and friends for their generous hospitality. Thanks were also given to the Rector for the use of the bells and for conducting the service.

The Vicar of Monk Sherborne gave permission at very short notice for the use of his bells, which was very much appreciated, Bob Singles, Grandsire Doubles and Stedman Doubles being rung on this very good peal of five. The methods rung were Grandsire Doubles, Plain Bob Minor, Stedman Doubles, Kent Treble Bob, Cambridge and London Surprise Minor.
