A quarterly meeting of the Winchester District was held at Hursley on Saturday [Oct. 19th], a fair number of ringers being present from various towers, namely, Winchester, North Stoneham, Titchfield, Southampton, Romsey and King’s Somborne. After ringing in various methods, a service was conducted by the Rev. Husband, who gave a short address on ‘Self Sacrifice.’ He considered all church bellringers were performing a duty which was, to a certain extent, self-sacrifice.
Tea was served in the Church Hall, to which twenty-two sat down and at the business meeting which followed, votes of thanks were tendered to the Vicar for the use of the bells and for the service. Handbell ringing terminated the meeting, and the ringers adjourned to the tower for further touches, which brought to a close a very pleasant meeting.
