A very successful quarterly meeting of the Christchurch District was held at Brockenhurst on Saturday, February 26th, when, in spite of the inclement weather, 21 members attended from Bournemouth (St. Peter’s), Brockenhurst, Christchurch, Lyndhurst, Lymington, Sopley and North Stoneham.
At the business meeting, Mr. Armstrong was elected chairman, and spoke of the great loss sustained by the Guild by the death of the Rev. C. E. Matthews. Respect was shown by the members standing in silence in the usual way.
It was decided to hold the next quarterly meeting at Fordingbridge, subject to the restoration work at present being carried out to the bells by Messrs. Taylor and Co. being completed. Failing that tower, Lymington was selected, and due notice of this meeting will be given in ‘The Ringing World.’
Good practice was held in the following methods: Grandsire and Stedman Doubles, Plain Bob and Kent Minor.
It may be mentioned that Brockenhurst possesses the lightest ringing peal in Hants, the tenor being only 4¼ cwt.
