RINGING DEMONSTRATION BY DR. PHOEBE BARNARD

Posted on the 11th May 2013

Our morning outing on Saturday 11 May 2013 took us to Hoogie and Carol's lovely home where Dr. Phoebe Barnard gave us a wonderful ringing demonstration.   Thanks to Phoebe for her patience and dedication, Hoogie and Carol for their hospitality and the committee for putting this together.  - Anton)
