A meeting of the Southampton district was held at Netley Abbey on Saturday, October 4th. The methods rung on the bells during the afternoon and evening ranged from Grandsire and Stedman Triples up to and including London and Bristol Surprise. Tea and business meeting took place at a local cafe, the Rector of Dibden being in the chair. The Vicar of Netley was unable to be present. Several ringers from St. Mary’s, Southampton, were elected to the Guild, and it was decided to hold a combined practice at St. Michael’s, Southampton, on Tuesday, November 4th, at 6.30 p.m.

Mr. G. Williams called the Vicar’s attention to the condition of the bell frame, which requires the bell hanger’s attention.

Members present were from North Stoneham, Overton, Dibden, Portsmouth, Southampton, Bishopstoke, Titchfield and Winchester, and Mr. Trimmer, of Croydon.
